State Entity Responsible for Monitoring Compliance

A CCBHC monitoring team involving staff from New Jersey FamilyCare (Medicaid), the Department of Children and Families, and the Department of Human Services' DMHAS.

Monitoring Instrument

Demonstration Application Guidance, State's Compliance with CCBHC Criteria Checklist, modified to include a provider self-assessment.

Method and Frequency of Monitoring

  • The CCBHC monitoring team monitors compliance with program requirements through annual on-site monitoring visits and review of an annual self-administered assessment tool.

  • Billing through the Medicaid Management Information System is reviewed quarterly. "Numbers served" are requested two times per month. The first full data submissions were submitted in January 2018 for state review.

Additional Safeguards

  • New Jersey's Department of Human Services contracted with Rutgers University to assess and monitor the implementation of EBPs among CCBHC providers.
