EPIC EBP Program Designation
The goal of the EPIC EBP Program Designation is to identify and roster providers who are offering high quality evidence-based and evidence-supported practices and to increase the number of individuals who receive evidence-based services. The EPIC EBP Program Designation outlines a set of standards that are expected for implementing an EBP Program and will enable CBH to set up mechanisms for monitoring and incentivizing the delivery of EBPs. Providers who receive the EBP Program Designation will be included on referral lists utilized by CBH Member Services, CBH Clinical Management and made available to behavioral health professionals, members, and the general public.
