Child & Adolescent Center of Excellence (COE)
The Ohio Children’s Alliance, serving as a subgrantee to Case Western Reserve University, administers a Financial Services Program to reimburse participating Multi-Systemic Therapy (MST) and Functional Family Therapy (FFT) providers.
Providers may utilize FSP funding if youth meet the following criteria:
Are referred to the provider by a Title IV-E Agency
Are determined by the Title IV-E Agency as a candidate for Family First Prevention Services,
Lack Medicaid coverage.
In order for the youth to be eligible, the Title IV-E Agency must:
Have the case open as a prevention services case in SACWIS.
Complete the case service for evidence-based practice MST/FFT and link it to the case plan with the status set to provided.
Email a copy of the SACWIS prevention services referral form to the COE.
Keep the case open until MST/FFT services are complete.
The Financial Services Program reimbursement rate for Multi-Systemic Therapy and Functional Family Therapy will mirror the prevailing Ohio Medicaid reimbursement rate for those services. See Reimbursement Rates >
