For Recipients of State-Funded Services
WELCOME TO SANDHILLS CENTER
The Sandhills Center Tailored Plan has State-Funded services for people living in our 11-county region. These are services paid for by the state or federal government outside of Medicaid services.
Recipients are people who get State-Funded services for treatment or care that is not paid for by Medicaid. Some people who get Medicaid services also may get State-Funded services for specific care that is not paid for by Medicaid. Therefore, some people may be both members and recipients.

HOW CAN I GET STATE-FUNDED SERVICES?
You may be able to get state funding if you need behavioral health services and:
- You have Medicaid and need a service not paid for by Medicaid.
- The service you need is not paid for by your private insurance.
- You have used up your private insurance behavioral health benefits.
- You don’t qualify for Medicaid and have no other insurance.
Check with your provider to see if you qualify for State-Funded services. Funding is limited. That means even if you qualify to get services, you may not be able to get them if there are not enough funds. If this happens, you may be put on a waiting list by Sandhills Center until more funds are available.
If you are pregnant and using drugs or alcohol, or are a person who injects drugs, you may be able to get help while you wait for services. Call your care manager or Member & Recipient Services at 1-800-256-2452 (TTY: 1-866-518-6778). Let them know about your pregnancy and/or substance use.
