CORE (Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment)

Effective 2/1/22, four Adult Behavioral Health Services (BH HCBS) will be changing to Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment (CORE).

New York State is making this change because CORE Services are easier to get than BH HCBS. Eligible members can get CORE Services through a recommendation from a qualified provider. The services moving from BH HCBS to CORE Services are:

  • Community Psychiatric Support and Treatment (CPST)
  • Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR)
  • Family Support and Training (FST)
  • Empowerment Services-Peer Support
