OAR 309-009-0060


The Authority may grant a variance to a CCBHC applicant or provider if:


There is a lack of resources to meet the criteria required in these rules; or


Implementation of the proposed alternative services, methods, concepts or procedures would result of improved outcomes for the individual.


CCBHC applicants must submit the variance request directly to the CCBHC project team.


The request must be in writing and must contain the following:


Criteria from which the variance is sought;


The reason for the proposed variance;


The alternative practice, service, method, concept, or procedure proposed, and;


A plan and timetable for compliance with the section of criteria for which the variance applies.


The CCBHC principal investigator must approve or deny the request for a variance and must notify the provider in writing of the decision to approve or deny the requested variance, within 30 days of receipt of the variance. The written notification must include the specific alternative practice, service, method, concept, or procedure that is approved and the duration of the approval.


Granting a variance for one request does not set a precedent that must be followed by the Authority when evaluating subsequent requests for variance.
