The unit of service shall be 15 minutes of continuous services provided directly to, or on behalf of, the child, youth or young adult, including collateral contacts and activities necessary to develop, implement, coordinate, monitor and support the ICP. The provider may bill for a maximum of 64 units (16 hours) over the eight-week period, as authorized by the CSA. The provider shall bill only for the amount of time actually provided for stabilization management on each date of service.
