EXEC BUDGET PROPOSAL: BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
REINVESTMENT FROM MMC
A NYS Council advocacy priority was included in Governor Hochul’s proposed budget related to reinvestment of savings from the behavioral health carve into Medicaid managed care. The proposal allocates $74 million from MMC plans recoupments for reinvestment through OMH and allocates $37 million from MMC plan recoupment for investment through OASAS for SFY 2022-23. This totals $111 million (state share) and $222 million gross ($148 million for OMH and $74 million for OASAS over two years).
