Supporting integration with the CT BHP Administrative Services Organization

A presentation to the CT BHP Oversight Council

September 13, 2006

Overview of process l.jpg
Overview of Process

  • Residential and Level II Group Home levels of care are the costliest and most intensive services DCF funds

  • CPT staff at DCF process over 2000 requests for placement annually (Area office, CSSD and Parole)

  • In any given year, approximately 300-350 RTC and Level II Group Home “slots” become available

Why change the process l.jpg
Why change the process?

  • DCF appreciates the complexity of managing the high volume of requests against existing resources and the need to identify alternative treatment plans when necessary

  • Contract with ValueOptions requires authorization, continued care review and transition planning for RTC and Group Home levels of care

  • Using existing IT resources within VO, DCF is planning to streamline the CPT process to enhance efficiency and support appropriate clinical match of service to need
