Behavioral Health, Rehabilitation, and Case Management Services Handbook : 8 Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Services (Abuse and Dependence) : 8.3 Assessment

8.3
Clients must be assessed by a Medicaid-enrolled CDTF for treatment services to begin. Clients who are in fee-for-service Medicaid can obtain their assessment from any Medicaid-enrolled CDTF.
CDTF assessment must be performed by a qualified credentialed counselor (QCC) (as defined by the DSHS licensure standard) to determine the severity of a client’s SUD and identify their treatment needs. Assessments are limited to once per episode of care. An assessment must be billed with procedure code H0001 and modifier HF.
Documentation of the QCC assessment must be maintained in the client’s medical record.
