As one of the six Medicaid Funded Children's Health and Behavioral Health Services, OLP consists of three different service components: evaluation, counseling, and crisis. Service components include licensed evaluation (assessment); psychotherapy (counseling); and crisis intervention. OLP is performed by an individual who is licensed in NYS to diagnose, and/or treat individuals with a physical illness, mental illness, substance use disorder, or functional limitations at issue, operating within the scope of practice defined in NYS law and in any setting permissible under State law. OLP services can be provided to individuals, families, or groups, and can be provided on-site or off-site. Please reference the Medicaid State Plan Provider Manual for Children's BH Early and Periodic Screening and Diagnostic Testing (EPSDT) Services for definitions of service components and staffing requirements.
