RHP 13 Project 1:
Permian Basin Community Centers is required by rules passed by the 80th Texas legislative session to develop a two-year local plan for the development of an external provider network for mental health services. This plan will provide a standardized, transparent process for planning and developing a network of mental health service providers, emphasize a choice of providers, and allow for local control through stakeholder input while requiring the network to be managed by PBCC.
In accordance with Texas Health and Safety Code (THSC), §533.0352 (Local Authority Planning for Local Service Area), “each local mental health and mental retardation authority shall develop a local service area plan to maximize the authority’s services by using the best and most cost-effective means of using federal, state, and local resources to meet the needs of the local community according to the relative priority of those needs.”
THSC §533.03521 requires PBCC to “develop a local network development plan regarding the configuration and development of the local mental health authority’s provider network. The plan must reflect local needs and priorities and maximize consumer choice and access to qualified service providers.” In developing our local plan, PBCC must ensure compliance with state and federal statute and the mental health Performance Contract, specifically Authority Attachment, Section I. A. regarding local planning. PBCC's plan is due to DSHS on October 1, 2012. We will post this draft plan on our website from August 27 until September 10, 2012. Questions should be directed to: Permian Basin Community Centers; 401 E. Illinois; Midland, Texas 79701; 432-570-3333; Fax 432-570-3346;
