Intensive Treatment in Foster Care (ITFC)
Intensive Treatment in Foster Care (ITFC) is a mental health package covered by Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP). ITFC establishes policies and practices for certification and coverage of mental health services for children who require intensive levels of intervention.
Intensive Treatment in Foster Care (ITFC) service components may only be provided by an agency (county, tribe or provider) that has been certified using the provider certification process developed by DHS.
The spectrum of services available under ITFC allows providers to address the conditions of emotional disturbance that impair and interfere with children’s abilities to function. These services offer a broad range of medical and remedial interventions to restore a child’s functional abilities as much as possible.
