Possible omission?I

To Whom it May Concern,

     I was alerted by our MHSS coordinator to a partular excerpt from the proposed changes.  It's difficult to reference, but it's #3, towards the bottom.  It is the first sentence of a larger paragraph describing the completion of the ISP for MHSS:

"3. The LMHP, LMHP-supervisee, or LMHP-resident shall complete, sign, and date the ISP within 30 days of the admission to this service."

This is the only ISP reference that doesn't include the "QMHP-A, QMHP-E" credentials.  Since this was immediately following the regulation for the SSPI, and had the same phrasing, I thought it may be in inadvertant omission.  If it isn't, this would be the only service under CMHRS, that would require an LMHP to complete the ISP.  I appreciate your time and consideration.

Thank you,

Scott Britton,

Director of Quality Assurance
