FAQS on Medicaid and CHIP Coverage of Peer Support Services

These FAQs were developed in close collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to provide clarification regarding federal policy on coverage of peer support services outlined in the State Medicaid Director (SMD) letter #07-011 issued on August 15, 2007, which established that states “have the option to offer [p]eer [s]upport services as a component of a comprehensive mental health and substance use service delivery system.”
