STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Twenty

 

AN ACT relative to contracting requirements for certain providers of child welfare services with the department of health and human services.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  New Paragraph; Child Welfare; Procurement Requirements.  Amend RSA 170-G:4-d by inserting after paragraph I the following new paragraph:

I-a.  The commissioner shall employ a procurement model for administering the provision of therapeutic-based residential behavioral health treatment services provided pursuant to RSA 170-G and RSA 135-F.  All contracts shall incorporate the use of trauma-focused models of care.  In cases where the unique needs of a juvenile or the capacity of a contracted provider prevent the use of a contracted provider, the commissioner may approve and shall pay for placement with another certified provider on a temporary basis if the commissioner determines that the placement is necessary to meet the juvenile's immediate treatment needs.

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
