CBPP releases report on Medicaid for SUD services

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) recently released a report on the importance of Medicaid for building a comprehensive system of substance use care for low-income individuals. The report notes that in addition to fully leveraging Medicaid State and federal policymakers should: expand Medicaid coverage in the 12 States that have not yet adopted expansion, ensure that State Medicaid plans cover the full continuum of care for substance use disorder (SUD) services, ensure that grants and other temporary funding streams complement Medicaid to expand access to services, and expand and improve access to federal programs such as affordable housing and child-care programs.
