DCBS Worker Introduction

Information on this website is consistent with Cabinet for Health and Family Service DCBS/DPP Standard Operating Procedures (SOP). Reference is made to relevant SOPs where appropriate. The reader is encouraged to also refer to the on-line manuals for these SOPs. Below is a brief overview of some of the information that can be found on the CRP website and where the information can be located.

The Levels of Care section describes the steps necessary to obtain Initial Levels of Care (LOC), Emergency LOCs, Reassignments, and Redeterminations.

The Placement section explains the process for utilizing the Regional Placement Coordinators who can assist you in locating the best placement for children on your caseload who need out-of-home placements.

The Performance Measurement section contains the PCC Comparative Reports which provides program descriptions and outcomes data that help you compare the relative merits of programs you may be considering as possible placements. These are updated every three months.

Clinical Resources are a selection of links to web sites that we have found to be good resources in helping children.

We encourage you to contact the CRP Office or the Regional Placement Coordinators with any additional questions you might have.
