In CFTSS if the youth is enrolled in Health Home Care Management, does the Plan of Care replace the treatment plan?

No. The Health Home Care Manager determines what services are needed, facilitates referrals, and develops a HH Plan of Care. The treatment plan is developed by the treating practitioner who provides the direct services. The Agency/practitioner providing direct services is responsible for maintaining the treatment plan. 

For transitioning Waiver children, the Plan of Care can temporarily serve as the required treatment plan until March 31, 2019. 

For more information on the differences between treatment/service plans and Plan of Care, see state guidance.
