Concerns related to draft CMHRS manual

Chapter II and IV  -  A definition of a qualified mental health case manager is missing from the CMHRS manual.  All other qualified mental health provider types are defined.

Chapter IV, page 14  - please add clarification as to why SSPIs and or Psychiatric Diagnostic Interviews, (containing the 15 elements), completed prior to 1/1/19, cannot be used as a CNA.

Chapter II page 14  - PSR -  please add clarification regarding the added statement : under the supervision of an LMHP, LMHP-R, LMHP-RP or LMHP-S”…   What level of supervision is the LMHP type required to provide?


Chapter IV, page 49  -  This new statement is confusing and contradicts licensing regulation for ICT as case management is already a part of PACT/ICT.

Effective January 30, 2015 individuals who meet the medical necessity criteria to receive ICT services may also simultaneously be approved for either Mental Health Case Management or Treatment Foster Care Case Management services.

Thank you.
