Juvenile Mental Health Services

The California Department of Health Care Services has agreed that county Mental Health Plans are obligated to provide Intensive Care Coordination (ICC) and Intensive Home Based Services (IHBS) (also known as “Katie A. services”) to all full scope Medi-Cal beneficiaries under the age of 21 that meet medical necessity. ICC and IHBS are intensive home and community-based mental health services that aim to reduce institutionalization of youth with mental health needs and allow them to remain in their own homes and communities.
