This requirement will substantially increase costs of placements -" accessible on-site or face-to-face to meet the child’s clinical and/or medical needs." 24/7 days a week . Currently many facilities have on-site clinical staff available 24/7, but many programs do not have after hours medical staff. This requirement as it stands will simply increase program costs, that will be passed onto CSB's and Courts. We understand that there needs to be 24/7 availability, but perhaps examining the "on-site or face to face" accessibility sentence to open up more options for residential agencies to be able to achieve this requirement including telehealth options.
