Home and Community Based Services - Adult Behavioral Health Eligibility

BH HCBS services may be provided to individuals who are eligible for enrollment into a Health and Recovery Plan (HARP) plan. HARP enrollment is open to Medicaid beneficiaries age 21 and older with serious mental illness and/or substance use disorders. Individuals enrolled in HIV SNPs determined by the State to be HARP-eligible may also be eligible for BH HCBS services.

HARP members will be required to be assessed for BH HCBS eligibility using the New York State (NYS) Community Mental Health Eligibility Assessment.

The NYS Eligibility Assessment will determine if an individual is eligible for BH HCBS, and if eligible, eligibility for Tier 1 or Tier 2 BH HCBS services.  Tier I services include employment, education, and peer supports. Tier 2 includes the full array of BH HCBS.
