The (NYS) Behavioral Health Services Advisory Council (BHASC) met on November 17. The OMH website now includes documents reviewed during the meeting to include a DRAFT OMH Telehealth Regulation document. If history repeats itself, we can expect the draft regulation to be posted in the NYS Register with a public comment period to follow. I’m unsure about the timeframe for the posting but assume it will be soon given that the Advisory Council has now reviewed it.
Here’s a link to the BHASC part of the OMH website:https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/bh_services_council/bhsac-11-17-2021.html
Here’s a link to a document that embeds the DRAFT OMH regulation. Just scroll down to see the second regulation in the group. https://omh.ny.gov/omhweb/bh_services_council/omh-regulations-111721.pdf
