8330 ICPC Evaluation and Treatment Services

CPS November 2006

A regional ICPC liaison may authorize ICPC Evaluation and Treatment Services when:

  •  the placement is likely to disrupt; or

  •  the child's safety will be threatened unless evaluation and treatment services are provided.

8331 Determining Eligibility

CPS November 2006

Only ICPC children placed in Texas and the families with whom they reside are eligible for ICPC Evaluation and Treatment Services, and then only when no other options exist. 

To be eligible:

  •  Medicaid must not be available to pay for the evaluation and treatment;

  •  community resources must not be available to pay for the evaluation and treatment; and

  •  there is documentation that the client, or someone that has authority to consent for the client, has provided written approval for the evaluation and treatment.

If Texas CPS investigates an allegation of abuse or neglect and opens the case for services, then the case and the family are no longer handled as a case-related special request and are handled in the same manner as any other CPS case and family. See also 4526 Interstate Placement Disruption.
