IHBT Fidelity

Consistent with the Ohio Department of Medicaid’s (ODM) and OhioMHAS rules to promote high-quality service, the IHBT Fidelity Tool was developed to ensure compliance with IHBT service delivery standards.

Providers choosing to bill services under Medicaid’s IHBT bundled rate must be certified. Certification assures minimum fidelity standards are being met.

The Fidelity Tools (Individual and Team Model Tools) consists of 12 fidelity standards, with ratings measured on a 1-5 scale. Each rating of 5 indicates best practice for that standard. Minimum fidelity is achieved between ratings 3, 4 and 5 which are highlighted within each standard.

The Individual Model page contains Fidelity Review instructions and data table requirements for teams certified in the Individual Model. The Individual Model comprises teams made up of only licensed staff working independently with clients.

The Teamed Model page contains Fidelity Review instructions and data table requirements for teams certified in the Teamed Model. The Teamed Model is made up of one or more two person teams sharing clients and consisting of a licensed clinician and either QMHS or Peer Support staff.”
