Bill Overview


House Bill 4925 would amend the Mental Health Code to create the Behavioral Health Oversight Council within the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to advise DHHS in developing and executing public behavioral health policies, programs, and services. It would also authorize DHHS to contract with an administrative service organization (ASO), which would assume certain responsibilities from DHHS and DHHS-designated community mental health (CMH) entities. The other four bills are complementary and amend other acts to account for changes in HB 4925.
