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.
The Adult SPOA committee oversees referrals to
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.
