Health Home Plus (HH+) for Serious Mental Illness

In 2014, the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) and the New York State Department of Health (DOH) implemented an enhanced service and rate code package for Health Homes called Health Home Plus. Health Home Plus (HH+) is an intensive Health Home Care Management (HHCM) service established for defined populations with Serious Mental Illness (SMI) who are enrolled in a Health Home.

Prior to May 2018, the ability to serve and bill the HH+ rate code for individuals meeting HH+ eligibility criteria were limited to former Office of Mental Health (OMH) Targeted Case Management (TCM) providers, or OMH Legacy CMAs. Effective May 2018, OMH has established HH+ CMA Credentials that must be met by any non-OMH Legacy CMAs and non-Legacy CMAs who will serve the HH+ population and receive the HH+ reimbursement.
