IN LIEU OF SERVICES, or ILOS
Sandhills Center offers services or settings that can take the place of services paid for by Medicaid. These are called in lieu of services (ILOS).
Sandhills Center has these in lieu of services:
- Family-Centered Treatment (FCT) - FCT is an in-home treatment for at-risk children, adolescents, and their families. FCT is offered in lieu of Intensive In-Home Service.
- Behavioral Health Urgent Care (BHUC) – BHUC is an alternative to the use of emergency departments or hospitals to help people having behavioral health crises. BHUC is offered in lieu of Emergency Department or Hospital Services.

You can refuse the ILOS and get the original state plan or waiver service instead.
