AB 470: Mental Health Equity Act (2017 - 2018)

Summary: 

AB 470 (Arambula) will establish robust tracking and evaluation measures to ensure Medi-Cal beneficiaries have timely access to quality mental health services that meet their cultural and language needs. Specifically, for adult specialty mental health, AB 470  would facilitate the improvement of mental health outcomes and the reduction of disparities for adults receiving specialty mental health services by implementing a statewide performance and outcomes reporting system. This reporting system would include statewide and plan-specific reporting on utilization, timely access, language access, and quality.
