Supplemental Disaster Emergency Billing and Documentation Guidance for ACT, PROS, CDT, PHP, Adult BH HCBS, Clinic, Children’s Day Treatment, Adult and Children’s Residential Programs
As a result of the COVID-19 Disaster Emergency, service delivery across the mental health system was transformed to rely heavily on telehealth service modalities. OMH issued guidance in April 2020 to afford providers certain flexibilities to sustain operations and meet the ongoing needs of New Yorkers when in-person service delivery was appropriately limited. All of OMH’s COVID-19 guidance remains available at https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/guidance/. Attached you will find supplemental guidance as a follow up to the previous guidance. Please make sure to review the supplemental guidance to ensure your programs are prepared for the end of the Public Health Emergency.
