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 Children's SPOA committee oversees referrals
to the Child and
Family Respite Program,
Intensive Case Management,
Home and Community Based Waiver Services, Family Based Treatment,
Community Residence and Residential Treatment Facility.
Clients referred to these programs must be under the age of 18.
Below, you can download a universal referral form and instructions
for where to send it. PDF versions of each
document are provided.
