Refer for CSoC

Process - how this works

Families or providers can call their Healthy Louisiana Plan to determine what they need. Through a specific screening process, the plan will identify children and youth who should be screened for CSoC enrollment. Regardless of CSoC eligibility, the plan will ensure that children and youth are referred to providers who can meet their needs.

Who qualifies/how to refer

Each Healthy Louisiana Plan operates a toll free number which is staffed 24/7 to take calls from anyone who has a behavioral health issue, provide over-the-phone crisis support as needed and help people find the right treatment.

CSoC will be recommended for children and youth who have very complex behavioral health needs and who are at risk of or are living out of their family homes.

Tips for making a referral

Helpful tips for the phone call:

  • Tell the representative who answers that you are calling to make a CSoC referral
  • Be prepared to answer questions about your concerns about what's going on in your child's life that makes you think CSoC is needed. You will be asked about the child's:
    • Age
    • Insurance/Medicaid
    • Mental Health History
    • Substance Abuse History
    • Medicine
    • Medical history
    • History with child welfare, juvenile justice and trouble in school

If a child or youth does not meet CSoC eligibility criteria, the Healthy Louisiana Plan will provide other Medicaid proveder network informaiton that will be helpful.
