The NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) designed Children and Family Treatment Support (CFTSS) brochures, fact sheets, posters and FAQs in multiple languages. CFTSS provides mental health and/or substance abuse services in NYS Medicaid for children ages birth to 21. Services can be provided at home, in the community, or wherever children/youth and their families feel comfortable.
Children's Home and Community Based Services are for children and youth (under age 21) who:
Are enrolled or eligible to enroll in Medicaid - Some children/youth may be eligible for Medicaid if they are eligible for Children’s HCBS. If a child/youth does not have Medicaid and you think they may be eligible for HCBS, call C-YES at 1-833-333-2937
Need extra care at home or in the community to avoid the need for long-term inpatient care
Are in a higher level of care and would be able to stay at home with extra support
The NYS Office of Mental Health created multiple HSBC brochures and Q&A.
