NYS OMH and OASAS provided a summary overview of the BH VBP Readiness Program BHCC budget and workplan templates.
The BHCC budget and workplan templates were: A) sent to the BHCC leads via email on 1/18/18; and, B) will be made available on the VBP BHCC webpage https://www.omh.ny.gov/omhweb/bho/bh-vbp.html.
Audience: BHCC lead, network, and affiliate providers were invited to attend this webinar to ensure they are familiar with these templates, and will be able to submit them as part of the program deliverables.
Representatives from the NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) and Department of Health (DOH) held a webinar to clarify the provider enrollment requirements for OMH Licensed Providers and Designated Adult BH HCBS Providers. The webinar was focused on the recent DOH initiative to assure enrollment of enrollable MMC plan network providers into FFS Medicaid. The introduction of the 21st Century Cures Act in December 2016 points to a need to identify provider and agency types that may need to enroll before December 31, 2017.
