Behavioral Home and Community-Based Services Delayed
The New York State has delayed implementation of Behavioral Home and Community-Based Services (“HCBS”) outside of New York City. These new services were scheduled to begin on July 1, 2016, but are now slated to be phased in three months later, on October 1, 2016.
Non-HCBS behavioral health care services will be offered through Medicaid Managed Care Organizations beginning on July 1, 2016.
The timeline for implementation is available at the Medicaid Redesign Team website: http://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/redesign/behavioral_health/index.htm
