OMH, OASAS, and DOH are partners in the development, implementation, and oversight of the Integrated Outpatient Services (IOS) license.

This licensure category further integrates physical and behavioral health services in clinic settings across the state.

The IOS regulations are identical for:

  • OMH-licensed providers (14 NYCRR Part 598)
  • OASAS-licensed providers (14 NYCRR Part 825)
  • DOH-licensed providers (10 NYCRR Part 404)

These regulations outline:

  • clinical standards
  • staffing requirements
  • physical plant guidelines
  • a single application and review process

Goals include reducing the administrative burden on providers and improving the overall coordination and accessibility of care for patients with multiple needs.

Benefits of an IOS License

  1. Expands the availability of behavioral health and primary care services by allowing providers to deliver a range of cross-agency clinic services at a single site under a single license.
  2. Promotes coordination of care for individuals receiving services with an integrated Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
  3. Reduces administrative burden with a single State oversight agency and recertification survey.
  4. Eliminates the 10% discount for multiple behavioral health services in the same day.

IOS License Eligibility

  1. Within their network, a provider must have the licenses from the relevant State agencies that oversee the services they are seeking to integrate.
  2. Submit completed IOS Application to the State agency that has primary oversight of the program currently.
  3. Provider must be in good standing for all the clinic sites they are licensed to offer services.
  4. Must follow all physical plant requirements outlined in 14 NYCRR §598.
  5. Providers must be a member of a health home designated by the Commissioner of Health.
