Iowa Senate panel approves mental health spending bill
DES MOINES (AP) — An Iowa Senate panel unanimously approved a bill Tuesday that calls for spending nearly $30 million on the state’s new regionalized mental health care system.
With passage by the Senate Appropriations Committee, the measure moves to the full Senate. The bill would provide $29.8 million in state funding over the next fiscal year for counties to administer mental health services not covered by Medicaid.
It’s the next step in funding a plan to coordinate mental health care on a region-based system. Counties would get about $18.4 million starting July 1 and another $11.4 million in Jan.
