What is Behavioral Health Services?

Behavioral Health Services (BHS) program are administered by the Department of Health and Hospitals through a partnership of the Louisiana Medicaid Program, the fiscal intermediary, the Office of Mental Health, and the network of certified and enrolled providers. 

Our Behavioral Health Services (BHS) programs are for adults with serious mental illness and children with emotional/behavioral disorders. All of our services are outpatient and designed to reduce the disability resulting from the symptoms of mental illness and assist in the recovery and resiliency of the recipient. Most services are home and community- based and are provided on an as needed basis to assist recipients in coping with the symptoms of their illness.

The intent of our BHS program is to minimize the disabling effects on the individual’s capacity for independent living and to prevent or limit the periods of inpatient treatment. Providers offer prior authorized services to adults with mental illness and youth with an emotional/behavioral disorder who meet medical necessity criteria for services.


Our BHS Programs are expected to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Assist recipients in the stabilization of acute symptoms of mental illness;

  • Assist recipients in coping with the chronic symptoms of their mental illness;

  • Minimize the aspects of mental illness that make it difficult for a recipient to live independently;

  • Reduce or prevent psychiatric hospitalizations; and

  • For children, minimize the amount of time spent in out-of-home placement and disruptions in school.
