There is a growing body of evidence about SBIRT’s effectiveness in reducing drinking and substance use problems. Those individuals receiving brief interventions show improvements in employment, housing, legal, physical and emotional health as well as exhibiting decreases in their substance use. These improvements in social and health domains are supported by the outcomes from Missouri’s SBI program, MOSBIRT (Adkins & Noel, 2011). Funding the State Medicaid codesfor SBI services is instrumental for maintaining Screening and Brief Intervention (SBI) practices in Missouri once the federal funds for these services expire.

An analysis of the status of the Medicaid SBI codes in the 50 states was conducted to support the funding of the codes. The document was used as evidence for the state legislature to approve the funding of the MoHealthNet SBI codes, that went in to effect in January, 2015.
