The process of purchasing a good or service for a consumer is primarily initiated by a counselor.

Purchases must support a consumer’s Therapeutic outcome. Purchases made prior to the completion of the Individualized Written Rehabilitation Plan (IWRP) are limited to diagnostics and services needed to complete diagnostics.

Purchases initiated before the IWRP is completed are documented in a service justification case note.

Purchases made after the IWRP is completed must be included on IWRP, an IWRP amendment, or service justification case note.
