How to Write a 10-Minute Treatment Plan Course Objectives, Description, and Outline
- Identify the five main components of a good treatment plan
- Define the difference between treatment goals and objectives
- Choose goals that are medically necessary, so that they meet with insurance plan approval
- Identify the biggest mistake therapists make when documenting planned interventions
If you avoid writing treatment plans, you aren’t alone. One survey showed that over 60% of therapists don’t write them for all clients. Yet treatment plans are required by insurance plans, as well as many ethics codes, licensing boards, and state laws. In fact, if you don’t write treatment plans, you (or your client) may not be paid by a health plan due to lack of necessary documentation for billing. Plus, a treatment plan can protect both you and your clients, ensuring all parties have a clear understanding of the goals and progress being made.
