Intensive In-Home Treatment Programs

The Intensive In-Home Treatment Program is for children and families when a child has severe emotional disturbance.  We provide this program for residents of Juneau and Adams counties through contract with the local county Department of Human Services.  We are able to bill the Wisconsin Medical Assistance Program (WMAP) for this service with a health check from your family physician or local public health nurse that indicates this service is necessary.   
 
This service consists of a two person mental health team which meets with the child and family members in their home or in the community to address the behavior issues and the dynamics of the family.  The lead person is a certified psychotherapist.  The second person on the team is referred to as the secondary therapist and case manager.  This service can be quite intensive with several meetings or other contacts occurring each week.  Coordinating with social services and the schools is usually always an important part of this service. 
 
To qualify for this service a child must pass a health check, there must be a physician order for the service, and the county department of human services must approve it.  In addition, the WMAP must prior authorize the service.  This means that an extensive assessment and plan must be submitted to the state for approval to allow payment from WMAP.  With the requirement of jumping through all of these hoops to get into the program, only a very selective population of children can be served, but this service can be very helpful to families who have a child with severe emotional disturbance.  This program can address a much greater need than can ordinarily be addressed through the outpatient clinic.  Another advantage to this program is that much of the cost of the program is offset through our Medicaid collections, which helps the county department pay for the service.
