OCYF Bulletin 00-14-01: Information Sharing Policies and Procedures for Communication Between Agencies and Individuals Who Supervise and Care for Children and Youth in Out-of-home Placement and the Physical Health and Behavioral Health Managed Care Organizations was produced to update Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) Bulletin 00-99-05, HealthChoices Information Sharing Policies and Procedures. Bulletin 00-99-05  was issued in 1999, prior to final privacy rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act 45 CFR Parts 160 and 164 as amended and the enactment of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009. This bulletin transmits to child welfare agencies and physical health (PH-MCO) and behavioral health managed care organizations (BH-MCO) protocol and guidelines for communication between agencies and individuals who supervise and care for children and youth in out-home-placement (also known as substitute care) and the PH-MCO and BH-MCO. This bulletin makes obsolete OCYF Bulletin 00-99-05.
