what is clip
What is CLIP?
  • The most intensive psychiatric treatment in WA for residents ages 5-18 years.
  • Provides inpatient treatment for youth with severe psychiatric impairment and is a resource on the continuum of care.
  • Services are available to both Medicaid and non-Medicaid youth.
  • A CLIP admission is not available as a crisis service, nor are children admitted to a CLIP Program solely because they need a safe place to live.
  • CLIP referrals are either via voluntary application or Involuntary commitment.
when is clip appropriate
When is CLIP Appropriate?
  • When least restrictive options in the community have first been attempted / exhausted to ameliorate the concerns. (e.g. increase in hours of service in outpatient, CHAP / Wraparound, intensive services from other systems, etc.)
  • When youth “meets Medical Necessity” Youth must have a severe psychiatric impairment which warrants the intensity and restrictions of treatment in a CLIP program.
  • There must be an expected benefit from this level & type of treatment.
when is clip inappropriate
When is CLIP Inappropriate?
  • When less restrictive interventions have not been attempted / exhausted.
  • As a “placement” option or “last resort”. CLIP is a thoughtful, planned course of mental health treatment.
  • Any attempt to utilize as a crisis service.
  • It is not a residential program where youth can stay until adulthood.
  • Solely for “medication adjustments” or “medication vacations”.
  • When another system can better or more appropriately serve the child/youth (detention, Children’s Administration, primary care, etc.)

medical necessity criteria federal standards voluntary referrals
Medical Necessity Criteria-Federal Standards (Voluntary Referrals)
  • Ambulatory care resources available in community do not meet needs of youth
  • Proper treatment of youth’s psychiatric condition requires services on an inpatient basis under direction of a physician.
  • Services can reasonably be expected to improve client’s level of functioning or prevent further regression of functioning
  • Youth has been diagnosed as having an emotional/behavior disorder as defined by the DSM manual.
  • Youth has been diagnosed with a severe psychiatric disorder that warrants extended care in the most intensive, restrictive setting.
  • Youth agrees to treatment (unless ITA’d)
certification waiting list assignment procedures
Certification, Waiting List & Assignment Procedures
  • Once voluntary application is received it gets reviewed. If all application materials are there youth gets put on wait list.
  • Voluntary applications are reviewed by the CLIP Certification Team based on Federal Medical Necessity Criteria.
  • Once approved youth are assigned to most appropriate CLIP facility in order of their place on statewide waiting list
  • Program assignment is based upon needs, bed availability, family/community choice, geographic proximity, age, gender, etc.
  • Wait times vary greatly and are dependent upon many factors.
