(a) All documentation for services provided under active treatment must be documented in an individual note and reflect the content of each session

(a) All documentation for services provided under active treatment must be documented in an individual note and reflect the content of each session provided. Individual, family, process group, expressive group, individual rehabilitative, and group rehabilitative services documentation must include, at a minimum, the following:

(1) Date;

(2) Start and stop time for each session;

(3) Dated signature of the therapist and/or staff that provided the service;

(4) Credentials of the therapist;

(5) Specific problem(s) addressed (problems must be identified on the plan of care);

(6) Method(s) used to address problems;

(7) Progress made towards goals;

(8) Member's response to the session or intervention; and

(9) Any new problem(s) identified during the session.

(b) Signatures of the member, parent/guardian for members under the age of eighteen (18), physician, LBHP, and registered nurse (RN) are required on the individual plan of care (IPC) and all plan of care reviews. The IPC and plan of care review are not valid until signed and separately dated by the member, parent/legal guardian for members under the age of eighteen (18), physician, RN, LBHP, and all other requirements are met. All treatment team staff providing individual therapy, family therapy, and process group therapy must sign the IPC and all plan of care reviews. All plans of care and plan of care reviews must be signed by the member upon completion, except when a member is too physically ill, or the member's acuity level precludes him/her from signing. If the member is too physically ill or the member's acuity level precludes him/her from signing the plan of care and/or the plan of care review at the time of completion, the member must sign the plan when his/her condition improves but before discharge. Documentation should indicate the reason the member was unable to sign and when the next review will occur to obtain the signature.

(c) Candidates for licensure for licensed professional counselor, social work (clinical specialty only), licensed marital and family therapist, licensed behavioral practitioner, licensed alcohol and drug counselor, and psychology (mental health specialty only) can provide assessments, psychosocial evaluations, individual therapy, family therapy, and process group therapy as long as they are involved in supervision that complies with their respective, approved licensing regulations and licensing boards. Additionally, their work must be co-signed and dated by a fully-licensed LBHP in good standing, who is a member on the treatment team. Individuals who have met their supervision requirements and are waiting to be licensed in one (1) of the areas of practice in OAC 317:30-5-240.3(a)(2) must have their work co-signed by a fully-licensed LBHP in good standing, who is a member on the treatment team. All co-signatures by fully-licensed LBHPs in good standing, must be accompanied by the date that the co-signature was made. Documentation of the service is not considered complete until it is signed and dated by a fully-licensed LBHP in good standing.
