The New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) announces the availability of funds to support the expansion of Health Home Plus (HH+) in New York State. It is anticipated that OMH will make up to 63 awards across the state, contingent upon availability of funding. This funding is specifically targeted for OMH-designated Specialty Mental Health Care Management Agencies (SMH CMA) to develop formal pathways with hospitals, correctional/criminal justice agencies and other key providers serving the HH+ SMI population by which timely and coordinated linkage to HH+ services is provided to individuals experiencing a critical transition in care. The combined total of these awards will be up to $2,500,000 over one (1) year. (See Section F Use of Funds).

Health Home Plus (HH+) is an intensive Health Home Care Management (HHCM) service established for adults with SMI and who meet certain indicators for high need, such as risk for disengagement from care and/or poor outcomes (e.g., multiple hospitalizations, incarceration, and homelessness). To ensure the intensive needs of these individuals are met, Health Homes ensure HH+ eligible individuals receive a level of service consistent with the requirements for caseload ratios, in-person visits, and minimum levels of staff experience and education. These individuals may benefit from the enhanced support of HH+ for up to 12 consecutive months.  The goal of the Health Home Plus expansion is to increase the engagement of the HH+ SMI eligible population in Health Home and its utilization of HH+ services.

The expansion of Health Home Plus is a significant opportunity to support individuals with mental illness in meeting their complex needs and sustaining engagement in the community.
