CABHAs: Critical Access Behavioral Health Agencies



The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has approved a definition and description of a new category of provider agency, Critical Access Behavioral Health Agency (CABHA). The CABHA is designed to make sure that critical services are delivered by a clinically competent organization with appropriate medical oversight and the ability to deliver a continuum of services. The CABHA will move the public system over time to a more coherent service delivery model that reduces clinical fragmentation at the local level and begins to prepare the provider community for the changes that will be required in a waiver environment.
