HealthChoices members are eligible to receive state plan services offered by their choice of at least two service providers as well as additional supplemental services that have been approved for use by the BHSSBC HealthChoices Program.

Services are available to children and adolescents and can be provided at home, school, or in other community settings.  The types of services provided include:

  • Behavior Consultant: Designs and directs the implementation of a behavior modification intervention plan which is individualized to each individual and family’s needs.  They identify behavioral goals and intervention techniques and recommend behavioral change methods and serve as a consultant within the treatment team.  They provide assessment, program design, and monitoring.
  • Mobile Therapy: Provides intensive therapeutic services to a child and family in settings other than a provider agency or office. Provides child-centered, family-focused, individual, and family psychotherapy that addresses defined problems and will utilize a strengths-based approach, which includes the child and parents/caretakers in the treatment and as members of the treatment team.
  • Behavioral Health Technician: Provides one-on-one interventions to an individual in various settings when the behavior without this intervention would require a more restrictive treatment or educational setting. Services include crisis intervention techniques, immediate behavioral reinforcements, emotional support, time-structuring activities, time out strategies, and additional psychosocial rehabilitative activities as prescribed in the treatment plan. Works to transfer those skills to the individual and the individual’s natural supports.
