The Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) is now accepting public comments on Chapter 504 Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Waiver Services Manual. Substance Use Disorders occur when the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causes clinically and functionally significant impairment, such as health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school or home. West Virginia has applied for and received approval of a Section 1115 Demonstration Waiver to help develop a continuum of SUD treatment benefits designed to address the immediate and long-term physical, mental and social needs of individuals with Substance Use Disorders and to promote and sustain long-term recovery. These services are designed for all members with conditions associated with substance use disorders, and may be provided to members in a variety of settings.
