The Dane County Department of Human Services and Journey Mental Health Center hold joint certification for Dane County's DHS 34 Emergency Mental Health Service Program. A variety of programs offered by different agencies operate under the umbrella of this certification. These programs provide crisis hotline, mobile response, residential stabilization, and crisis case management services. Together they comprise a continuum of crisis care we call the Dane Crisis Provider Network, or DCPN.

DCPN agencies may bill for crisis services provided to Medicaid recipients as allowed through the Forward Health Crisis Intervention benefit. While Journey Mental Health Center provides clinical oversight of all crisis activities, Dane County Department of Human Services oversees administrative requirements and manages Medicaid billing for contracted crisis providers.

DCPN Handbook

The handbook provides an overview of the DCPN and offers guidance for DCPN members regarding the provision of crisis services, requirements for staff members who deliver crisis services, and billing.

Crisis Billing Portal

DCPN providers use the Dane County Human Services Billing Portal to submit claims. Dane County-issued log-in credentials must be entered to access the portal. Contact with questions related to portal use, log-in issues, claim submission issues, or other technical problems. This email address can also be used to request log-in credentials for currently rostered staff members who need access to the portal. Portal access for new staff members may be requested during the rostering process.
