Effective April 1, 2017, changes are planned for the DMAS Addiction and Recovery Treatment Services (ARTS) benefit.

This new benefit expands access to a comprehensive continuum of addiction treatment services for all enrolled members in Medicaid, FAMIS and FAMIS MOMS and significantly increases the payment rates for these services. It also strengthens how Virginia educates individuals, providers, and communities; treats patients identified with a Substance Use Disorder (SUD); collects and monitors data and health outcomes; and enforces new evidence-based policies and practices.

A new Medicaid Memo has been posted to the Virginia Medicaid Web Portal. The memo may be accessed by clicking here or by navigating to the Memo section of the portal (Provider Services > Medicaid Memos to Providers).
