Adult Single Point of Access (SPOA)
for certain specialized intensive services

As part of its 2000-2001 New Initiatives, the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) has mandated that county mental health administration directly oversee and manage the access to certain Medicaid funded intensive services.  These services include Intensive Case Management (ICM), Supportive Case Management (SCM), Home and Community Based Waiver, Family Based Treatment, and adult residential services.  Each county is required to maintain Single Point of Access Committees that review all referrals and manage access to these services.  Delaware County has two SPOA committees, one for children and one for adults.

Making a referral

To make a referral to a service overseen by a SPOA committee, you must complete a referral form and send it to the appropriate coordinator as explained below.

Adult SPOA

The Adult SPOA committee oversees referrals to the Adult ICM and SCM programs as well referrals to the Community Residence and Apartment programs in Delaware County.  Clients referred to these programs must be 18 or older.  Below, you can download a universal referral form and instructions for where to send it.  PDF versions of each document are provided.
