(1) Qualified practitioners.  FBCS services are provided under the supervision of a physician aided by a licensed nurse, and also include LBHPs and Licensure Candidates for the provision of group and individual treatments. A physician must be available.  This service is limited to providers who contract with or are operated by the ODMHSAS to provide this service within the overall behavioral health service delivery system.
