#07-09-EMP: Wellness, Comprehensive Assessment, Rehabilitation And Employment (WECARE) Clinical Review Team (CRT)
(This Policy Bulletin Replaces PB #06-142-EMP)
The purpose of this policy bulletin is to advise all Job Center, Substance Abuse Case Management, and Conciliation and Substance Abuse Service Center staff of the new Wellness, Comprehensive Assessment, Rehabilitation and Employment (WeCARE) Clinical Review Team (CRT) and the codes that will be offered in NYCWAY to refer applicants/participants to CRT for an evaluation. This policy bulletin is informational for all other staff. Individuals who were previously assessed by WeCARE and received a Functional Capacity Outcome(FCO) based on a Biopsychosocial (BPS) assessment may require a subsequent review of the individual's current functional capacity. In order to determine if a new WeCARE medical or specialty assessment is required, a review of the most recent FCO and current medical claim(s) must be evaluated by the CRT. The CRT process will include an interview with the individual and a review of past and current medical documentation.
* were formerly participating in the WeCARE program, are reapplying for public assistance, claiming a medical barrier, and the WeCARE FCO is less than 12 months old; or
* are being referred to WeCARE for FCO review due to a Fair Hearing decision.
