Adult Behavioral Health Home and Community Based Services Provider Designation


Adult Behavioral Health (BH) Home and Community Based Services (BH HCBS) were developed collaboratively by New York State’s Office of Mental Health (OMH), Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), and the Department of Health (DOH) as a part of the State’s Health and Recovery Plan (HARP) for individuals with serious mental illness and substance use disorders.

All agencies wishing to provide BH HCBS must apply to be designated for each service they would like to provide. Applicants may apply at any time for a designation. For information on providing BH HCBS, please visit the BH HCBS Manual, Provider Training and Technical Assistance Resources, and BH HCBS Guidance. If you have any questions, please email the Bureau of Program and Policy Development.
