Increase Residential Behavioral Health Beds

Abstract

The bill requires the department of human services (department) to renovate a building at the mental health institute at Fort Logan to create at least 16 additional inpatient civil beds for persons in need of residential behavioral health treatment. The bill authorizes the new beds to be used for persons needing competency services until the backlog of such persons is eliminated, and at that point the beds may begin to serve civil patients. The bill also directs the department and the department of health care policy and financing to create, develop, or contract to add at least 125 additional beds at mental health residential treatment facilities (mental health facilities) throughout the state for adults in need of ongoing supportive services. The bill requires mental health facilities to be licensed by the department of public health and environment as an assisted living facility or by the department as a behavioral health entity during the 2022-23 state fiscal year. Starting in the 2023-24 state fiscal year, the mental health facilities must be licensed by the behavioral health administration. For the new beds, the bill requires the department, in collaboration with the behavioral health administration, the department of health care policy and financing, and relevant stakeholders, to establish criteria for admissions and discharge planning, quality assurance monitoring, appropriate length of stay, and compliance with applicable federal law. The bill appropriates $65 million $41.9 million for the renovation of the building and the creation, development, or contracting for the new beds at treatment facilities.
