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.
