Reports that Arkansans who rely on Medicaid are struggling to get mental health care because of changes that state officials made to billing which has forced some providers to turn away patients and offer fewer services. The Department of Human Services is enforcing a litany of Medicaid-billing changes, causing long waits to get service, frequent changes in therapists and difficulties in scheduling appointments to get care.
