Maryland Medicaid and Mental Health
Disruption of Services
The mission of Complete Wellness has always included providing quality mental health services to individuals, couples, and families regardless of ability to pay for the services. Consistent with this mission, Complete Wellness has always participated with Maryland Medicaid and those that are on medical assistance.
On January 1, 2020, administration of all aspects of the mental health services was taken over by Optum. Unfortunately, since this transition has occurred mental health providers in the state of Maryland have not been able to authorization new patients for services or re-authorize existing medical assistance patients.
