Commonly Asked Questions
Q: Where does treatment occur?
A: Treatment occurs primarily in the home, but other contact must be conducted in various “out of home” locations so as to appropriately address the unique needs of the client (i.e. school, recreational areas, clinical appointments, work setting, etc.)

Q: Who is involved in the services provided?
A: The entire family is involved. The client is the primary target, but the whole family must share in addressing the issues necessitating intensive in-home services.

Q: How are services funded?
A: Services are provided through Medicaid with no charge to the parent; therefore, clients must be eligible Medicaid recipients.

Home is the permanent legal family residence and includes a child living with natural parents, relatives, guardian, permanent foster care, or pre-adoption placement. The provider must obtain a copy of legal documentation supporting the permanency of permanent foster care.

2. Have difficulty in establishing or maintaining normal interpersonal relationships to such a degree that they are at risk of hospitalization or out-of-home placement because of conflicts with family or community.
3. Exhibit such inappropriate behavior that repeated interventions by the mental health, social services, or judicial systems are necessary.
4. Exhibit difficulty in cognitive/behavioral ability such that they are unable to recognize personal danger or recognize significantly inappropriate social behaviors.

Services shall be used when out-of-home placement due to the clinical needs of the child is at risk or either:
1. Services that are far more intensive than outpatient clinic care are required to stabilize the child in the family situation; or
2. The child’s residence, as the setting for services, is more likely to be successful than a clinic; and
3. At least one parent or responsible adult with whom the child is living must be willing to participate in in-home services, with the goal of keeping the child with the family.
