FY 2021 OHH Updates and Information

  • The S0280 HG will be the Health Home code used for all OHH services effective 10/1/2020. New authorizations have been created in RECON for all existing clients with the S0280 HG code for 10/1/2020 – 9/30/2021.
  • All existing OHH clients have been enrolled in the WSA by NMRE. No additional documents will be required for existing clients.  Once access is approved for WSA, Health Home Partners (HHP’s) will be able to search and view information for the beneficiaries that belong to your program.
  • For OHH enrollments occurring through 9/30/2020, enrollment packets should be submitted via the NMRE ticket system at support.nmre.org.
  • For enrollments and disenrollment occurring 10/1/2020 and after, the enrollment process will go through the Waiver Support Application (WSA).
