BHCOE Disciplinary Actions
Compliance Concerns that are submitted to the BHCOE may be either accepted or denied. Compliance Concerns may be denied if the subject of the complaint does not hold a BHCOE accreditation or did not hold a BHCOE accreditation at the time of the incident. Compliance Concerns may be also be denied if they are unsubstantiated or do not indicate a breach in the BHCOE’s Code of Effective Behavioral Organizations (Code). A Compliance Concern may be accepted if it is (i) substantiated, (ii) pertains to a provider who is accredited by the BHCOE, and (iii) identifies a breach in the Code. Once a Compliance Concern is accepted it may proceed either by direct communication with the provider or via our Disciplinary System. Compliance Concerns that are dealt with through the BHCOE’s Disciplinary System are heard by the BHCOE’s Disciplinary Review Committee (DRC).
Any actions the BHCOE takes are limited to an organization’s BHCOE accreditation status. The desired result is to bring the provider into compliance with the Code; however, in some instances accreditation may be revoked, suspended or not renewed.
Agencies whereby the BHCOE has issued a revocation or suspension must not indicate that they hold a BHCOE accreditation during the time of their revocation or suspension. Similarly, agencies that no longer hold a BHCOE accreditation must not indicate that they are BHCOE accredited.
Below is a list of Compliance Concerns brought to the attention of the BHCOE. The name of the Provider is only listed in instances where a revocation or suspension has been issued.
Final Actions may include a denial, direct resolution, advisory letter, audit review, suspension, or having a BHCOE accreditation revoked.
