Progress notes are required for every service billed to the Fresno County Mental Health Plan. The date on the progress note must match the date on the bill that is submitted for that service. Medi-Cal regulations require that each progress note address the symptom(s) identified in the treatment plan, interventions and progress, and plans for further service. Therapy notes are to include the therapeutic techniques which were used, with a focus on symptom reduction.
The following links are for the different formats for progress note—any of the formats can be used. The top portion of each note is designed to help you meet the Medi-Cal requirement that you attempt follow-up for each “no show.”
