Requesting Clarification

1. Recommend that a timeframe for documenting the assessment be defined, as opposed to “At the start of services.”

2. Recommend that a timeframe for documenting the treatment plan and CEPP be defined, as opposed to “development of an immediate plan.”

3. Mobile Crisis, page 16—Recommend adding the word “or” for staff who can provide care coordination and treatment planning as the current wording could imply that all these professionals must provide these services to the individual.  The word “or” is used in the community stabilization section (page 32).

4. Community Stabilization, page 25—This wording implies that the treatment plan must be signed by a LMHP, LMHP-R, LMHP-RP, LMHP-S.  Page 32 indicates that a QMHP can provide treatment planning.  Is a LMHP, LMHP-R, LMHP-RP, LMHP-S required to sign the treatment plan?

Treatment Planning: · Individual Service Plans (ISPs see Chapter IV for requirements) shall be required during the entire duration of services and must be current. The treatment planning process should be collaborative but must be directed and authorized by a LMHP, LMHP-R, LMHP-RP, LMHP-S.
