TiPS is a program designed to increase the availability of peer-to-peer child psychiatry consultation teams to primary care clinicians (PCCs) who are prescribers of psychotropic medications for children insured by Pennsylvania’s Medical Assistance programs, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and UPMC commercial insurance. The program aims to provide real time resources to clinicians who desire consultative advice for children with behavioral health concerns.

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh’s primary care network, Children’s Community Pediatrics (CCP), has been selected by Pennsylvania state officials to take part in a new program to improve behavioral health treatment for children in the state.
