OMH Managed Care Update – June 2018

NYS Medicaid Managed Care
Health and Recovery Plans (HARPs)
Now Available on the NYS Marketplace

Individuals eligible to enroll in Health and Recovery Plans (HARPs) now have the option to select a HARP on New York State’s Official Health Plan Marketplace, New York State of Health (NYSoH), also known as The Exchange.

Enrolling in a HARP on the NYSoH Online Marketplace:

  • Individuals who are eligible for HARP can log on to their NYSoH account and the HARP option will be displayed for plan selection.
  • Individuals who are eligible for HARP who are not NYSoH account holders will need to update their consent through a Life Status Change (LSC) before the HARP option will display.
  • Individuals who are eligible for HARP and who are the NYSoH account holder will receive a written notice about enrolling in a HARP.  Individuals must respond to this notice if they do not wish to enroll in a HARP.

Important Reminder:

All Medicaid recipients must ensure the Medicaid program has your current mailing address!
