Closing a Service Episode

A written procedure describes the process for when a service episode is closed. An OhioKAN staff may find out that a service episode has ended when they follow up with the family or when the family reaches back out to OhioKAN. There are three primary reasons a service episode may end, although other reasons may arise:

  1. Family successfully accessed the provider.
  2. Family was unable to access the provider, i.e., ineligibility, provider closed, or language barriers.
  3. The need no longer exists, i.e., the child leaves the home, or the family met the need on their own.
