HCBS Implementation Delayed for Rest of State to October

Good Afternoon,

The timeline for the implementation of Behavioral Health Home and Community Based Services (BH HCBS) for the HARP population in the rest of the State has been delayed from July 1, 2016 to October 1, 2016 to follow the implementation timeline for NYC which allowed a 3 month time period between the implementation of non-HCBS behavioral health services in Mainstream Plans and HARPs and the implementation of BH HCBS.

 

The date of the implementation of non-HCBS behavioral health services in managed care in Rest of State has not changed and is on schedule for July 1, 2016.

 

For more information about the timeline for the behavioral health transition to managed care, please visit the following webpage: http://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/redesign/behavioral_health/index.htm

 

Thank You,

NYSDOH Health Home Program
