Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS)
Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS) or "wraparound" services follow all CASSP principles and are provided to children and their families in the home, school, and community settings. BHRS can be prescribed by an independent Clinical Evaluator or Licensed Psychologist if deemed medically necessary. Final determination of medical necessity is assessed by the County Mental Health Department and Managed Care Company. If approved, BHRS can be authorized with various combinations of the following workers:
BSC The Behavioral Specialist Consultant leads the BHRS treatment team. The BSC observes the child in the home, school, and community. They coordinate treatment with various professionals involved with the child including school officials, medical professionals and case managers. They develop the treatment plan and behavioral plan based on the families needs, clinical observations and coordination with other services involved.
MT The Mobile Therapist is a Masters Level Clinician. Mobile Therapy is an individualized counseling services that take place in the home, school, and community. Mobile Therapy services may include talk therapy, play therapy, or therapeutic game play. The mode of treatment is determined by the child's age, and ability to communicate.
TSS The Therapeutic Staff Support works on a one on one basis directly with the child in order to intervene/redirect problematic behaviors in the home, school, and community. TSS workers use interventions outlined in the treatment plan to address symptoms or behaviors associated with the following diagnoses: Autism, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, and more.
We have independent clinical evaluators trained on all CASSP Principles at each of our 3 offices. The Clinical Evaluator conducts a Children's Comprehensive Evaluation to determine if or which type of service may be medically necessary. Once an independent evaluation is completed, the County Mental Health Department and Managed Care Company will assess the medical necessity and/or frequency of services needed for final authorization.
