Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services Meets Medicaid’s New Standards

For a number of years, Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services (JFBHS) has been a Medicaid provider.  Medicaid recently initiated stringent standards of care, and JFBHS is pleased to announce that they passed – with flying colors – an unannounced three-day observation and assessment by a Medicaid representative.

This achievement is a testament to JFBHS’ mission to provide high quality evidence-based psychiatric, residential, educational and recovery treatment services for children who suffer from severe emotional trauma, mental illness and/or addiction.  Their goal is to restore wellness and provide support for successful reintegration into homes, families and communities.

Medicaid is a government-sponsored insurance program for persons of all ages whose income and resources are insufficient to pay for health care including mental health.

Medicaid raised the bar for psychiatric residential facilities, and JFBHS cleared the bar simply by doing what they already were doing:  providing high quality, effective services.  Medicaid will continue to make unannounced site visits, and JFBHS is confident that they will continue to meet the challenge and exceed the expectations.
