PART SSSS

Sec. SSSS-1. Department of Health and Human Services to establish rate structure with 2 levels of crisis services. The Department of Health and Human Services shall establish a rate structure that supports 2 levels of crisis services. The department shall establish a higher rate for a comprehensive, high-quality integrated crisis service system for children and adults that simplifies intake for clients, provides for consumer participation and a single telephone hotline with triage to a "warm line" and supports community-based services as a preferred setting. The department shall establish a lower rate for crisis services that do not meet the higher level of service. The department shall adopt rules, which are routine technical rules pursuant to the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 5, chapter 375, subchapter 2A, that describe 2 service levels.
