Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Who is counted in the system?
- The system includes individuals who have
received a PAID behavioral health service for programs which ODMHSAS
contracts with or operates. This includes behavioral health services paid
for with Medicaid funding or behavioral health services paid for with
state-appropriated, grant supported or federally-funded ODMHSAS monies.
- Includes substance residential, detox and
halfway house services contracted directly with ODMHSAS.
- Who is not included?
- Non-outpatient Medicaid funded behavioral
health services, such as most inpatient. The only inpatient counts
included are ODMHSAS state-operated inpatient facilities. Data from
privately-funded, non-contracted American Indian programs or private
insurance is NOT included, since we do not have access to the
- What does ‘Not Reported’ mean?
- There are several types of services which
do not require providers to report detail demographic information. These
include, but are not limited to, crisis and initial assessment services.
- Are years previous to FY11 available?
- Yes. However, the data available for
reporting years previous to FY11 does not include the Medicaid behavioral
health population. In FY11, ODMHSAS became the agency ‘responsible’ for
Medicaid funded behavioral health services.
- What is the difference between using the
Drug of Choice Query versus using one of the other queries?
- There are several. The Drug of Choice Query
looks at number of admissions, rather than number of unique individuals.
The Drug of Choice Query restricts the data to only admissions at
specific certified substance abuse locations and removed individuals who
may be receiving services because their spouse/parent is in treatment.
Also, individuals under the age of 12 are excluded.
- Why can I only see county of residence in
the County of Residence and Drug of Choice queries?
- To protect confidentially, we have to
make sure the data cannot be used to identify an individual. For example,
if there was only two female Asians between the ages of 0 and 6 in a
specific county (based on US Census data) and services were provided to
one of them, it is likely that a person could assume they know who the
individual was receiving services.
- If you need specific county data, such as
the number of American Indian females, between the ages of 9-13, please
contact us and we will review for confidentially issues.
- What is the difference between ‘Any Drug
of Choice’ and ‘Primary Drug of Choice’?
- The system allows consumers to select up
to three drugs of choice. These are reported as Primary, Secondary or
Tertiary Drug of Choice. ‘Primary’ only counts the first drug of choice
reported. ‘Any’ looks at all three fields.
- It may be beneficial to look at ‘Any’,
because consumers may report a drug of choice as Secondary or Tertiary.
For example, if you wanted to know the number of individuals who are
using Opiates and since it might not be their Primary drug of choice, you
could select ‘Any Drug of Choice’.
- What is a Fiscal Year?
- A Fiscal Year run from July 1st
of one year to June 30th of the next year. Example: FY14 runs
from 7/1/2013 to 6/30/2014.
- Why can’t I see all the data elements
which are reported to ODMHSAS?
- The intent of these queries was to
provide a quick overview to the public of consumer served. If you need
more detail, please contact us.
