neti overview
NETI Overview
  • The NETI funds medication-assisted and other treatment services for indigent New Jersey residents with an opiate addiction
  • Particular emphasis is placed on providing access to treatment for individuals referred by Syringe Exhange Programs (SEP)
  • The NETI contract agencies are responsible for identifying other payer sources to which clients can be transitioned during the course of the program
  • If the client is determined to be ineligible for another payer source during the course of treatment, the client may continue to receive services under the NETI, but the NETI contracted agencies will continue working with the client to identify other payer sources
neti eligibility criteria
NETI Eligibility Criteria
  • In order for clients to receive treatment services and other support services through the NETI, the NETI contracted providers will ensure proper eligibility in the following areas:
      • Income Eligibility
      • Program Eligibility
      • Clinical Eligibility
      • Co-occurring Service Eligibility
income eligibility
Income Eligibility
  • On Day One of the admission process, the NETI contract service agency screens the client for financial eligibility using the NJSAMS Division of Addiction Services Income Eligibility (DASIE) module
  • NETI contract agencies will assist clients in the application and enrollment process for programs which may include:
      • Medicaid
      • Work First NJ SAI
      • NJ Family Care
      • DAS slot-funded services, if capacity allows
income eligibility cont d
Income Eligibility (cont’d)
  • Client’s household income must be at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) Guidelines to receive NETI services
  • Income eligibility will be based on completion of DASIE module and Medicaid’s definition of household size and income
movement of clients through the system
Movement of Clients Through the System
  • If the client is eligible for another payer source, the client shall be re-directed to those services during the course of treatment
  • If the client is eligible for Medicaid, reimbursement through these sources shall be considered as program income and must be reported as such by NETI providers
  • No self-pay clients can receive services from the mobile unit or office-based services. Clients whose income is above 250% poverty must attain a referral to treatment at an agency that accepts self-pay and private insurance
  • If the client is eligible for SAI, the client shall become a SAI client. At any time, if the client is no longer eligible for SAI, the client may return to the NETI
program eligibility
Program Eligibility
  • To be eligible for the NETI, clients must:
      • Be a resident of New Jersey
      • Have a history of injectable drug use
      • Test positive for opiates or have a documented one year history of opioid dependence
      • Be able to provide proof of identification to prevent dual enrollment in medication-assisted treatment

      • Not previously enrolled as a client in an OMT program or a client under the care of a physician prescribing Suboxone within the past thirty (30) days

  • Other level of care services must be requested by the NETI contract service Case Manager LCADC
  • If issued a DAS-approved voucher, the client will be able to receive services through a DAS NETI Network approved provider

co occurring service eligibility
Co-occurring Service Eligibility
  • To provide on-site reimbursable comprehensive co-occurring services, NETI programs must be accepted as eligible providers in the DAS Co-occurring Network
  • NETI clients may be eligible to obtain co-occurring services as an enhancement at either the mobile unit, office-based program, or other NETI-approved voucher program, as long as these agencies are eligible providers in the DAS Co-occurring Network
  • Co-occurring services can only be accessed as an enhancement to other treatment services within the NETI
