The MAACLink Generated Standard Intake Form

The MAACLink generated Standard Intake Form is a report that a user can pull for a single day of service for the client after a service has been entered.  This form can be helpful for the client to be able to review the information entered that day and then sign off on the release on the bottom (this release is specific to managed funds and does not fulfill the requirements of the Client Consent and Release of Information form).  Some agencies use this form to pass along to their accounting or finance department so that they can issue the appropriate payment.  In addition this form is helpful to have in the client’s file for easy reference and provides the documentation necessary for audits.

Step by Step Guide to pulling a Standard Intake Form:
