Several states have identified IPS as a preferred strategy for promoting employment among people with behavioral health needs and have worked to expand the availability of IPS services statewide. Currently, twenty-four (24) states/regions and 6 countries actively participate in the International IPS Learning Community. IPS services are frequently administered through partnerships between state behavioral health and vocational rehabilitation and funded by “braiding” together dollars from a variety of federal, state, and local sources. This approach has typically been necessary because restrictions on federal funds prevent them from being used to cover all components of a high-fidelity IPS program. For example, states can choose to incorporate certain employment services into their Medicaid state plans as 1915(i) Home and Community Based Services benefits, but IPS components like job development may not be covered.
