SBIRT Guidance Document - The purpose of this document is to provide Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs), Oregon clinics and administrative staff with guidance on implementing screening for alcohol and drug misuse, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT), including coding and billing information and details on the CCO Incentive Measure specifications for the first measurement year (CY 2013). This document will be updated as appropriate to reflect the ongoing changes in policy and regulation.
