Integrated Care Program
Policies and Procedures
Each medication management provider will make a determination during session. Criteria for enrollement will be based on the following:
- Commitment to level of care: therapy weekly; medication management sessions bi-weekly.
- Limited daily functionality.
At the initial enrollment date, providers will provide a letter stating participation in ICP for a two week period. After the two week period, FMLA paperwork will be completed at the discretion of the provider, continuing treatment for another 4-6 weeks. At this time, the provider will complete FMLA paperwork back dating time off of work. Short Term Disability claims are processed at the discretion of the insurance company, and they may not deem payment of funds appropriate. Georgia Psychiatry and Sleep is not responsible for decisions made by the company regarding payouts.
Eligible patients will need to meet with an office manager to enroll in the program; at which time enrollment paperwork will be completed. Patients will acknowledge and understand the policies and commitment to participating in ICP. We will schedule appointments for four weeks.
Any missed appointments voids enrollment in ICP. Paperwork will not be completed, and the status of enrollment will be updated to reflect the discharge of ICP. Alternative programs will be recommended.
Patients may continue to see their established therapist on a weekly basis. The oustide therapist would be required to complete the given form letter at every session. It is the responsibility of the patient to bring this form to their next medication management session. If the form is not completed, they will be disenrolled in ICP. In house therapy is preferred.
