(1) These evaluations are considered critical documents to the integrity of care and treatment and must be completed as follows:

(A) History and physical evaluation must be completed within twenty-four (24) hours of admission by a licensed independent practitioner (M.D., D.O., A.P.N., or P.A.) in Acute, Acute II, and PRTFs, excluding CBTs, and within seven (7) calendar days of admission in a CBT.

(B) Psychiatric evaluation must be completed within sixty (60) hours of admission by an allopathic or osteopathic physician with a current license and a board certification/eligible in psychiatry in Acute, Acute II, and PRTFs, excluding CBTs, and within seven (7) calendar days of admission in a CBT.

(2) Each of the evaluations must be clearly identified as such and must be signed and dated by the evaluators.

(3) Each of the evaluations must be completed when the member changes levels of care if the existing evaluation is more than thirty (30) calendar days from admission.

(4) Existing evaluations of thirty (30) days or less may be used when a member changes provider or level of care. The evaluation(s) must be reviewed, updated as necessary, and signed and dated by the appropriate level of professional as defined by the type of evaluation.
