13.6.5 Core Therapy Services

See Appendix B for a complete list of core therapy services and provider qualifications. Core therapy services for PARS residential services including, but not limited to physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, cognitive therapy and neuropsychological services.

Core therapy services are based on the recommended tier and must be provided by a licensed or certified professional. If an identified core therapy service is provided by a non-licensed or certified professional, the service is not billable as part of the core therapy service for the tier.

For example, nursing services are considered part of base services and therefore are not billable as part of core therapy services. Goods and services that are not considered base or core therapy services are defined as ancillary and must be authorized by the CRS counselor.

See Chapter 14 for details.
