The Maryland Department of Health (MDH), in collaboration with Optum Maryland and the Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling, have worked to open access for individuals and their loved ones to receive gambling services. As of January 1, 2018, reimbursement for problem gambling services is available to support assessment, individual and group therapy for persons with gambling disorders and/or loved ones, and is now available to all residents of Maryland to receive these services at either their outpatient community Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder program or private practitioner.
