Thoughtful coordination – which ensures that each person gets the services they need – has many components. Coordinators provide outreach, advocacy and referrals to help link the people they work with to the most appropriate services, whether related to health, housing or employment. Coordinators help make sure that offerings are integrated so that the person receiving the services gets the greatest possible benefit.
As of July 1st, Medicaid Service Coordination has transitioned to Care Coordination. Access is proud to be affiliated with Care Design New York
Service Coordination for People Without Medicaid
Family Assistance providers help those people with developmental disabilities who live at home with their families and are not eligible for Medicaid or Medicaid Service Coordination. The coordinator advocates and provides information while linking individuals to the services they need. These may range from educational help, applying for benefits, providing information on social and recreational activities, referral to work supports and understanding and getting access to OPWDD services.
Medically fragile children enrolled in the Care at Home waiver can be eligible for Medicaid based on the child’s income and assets with the parents’ income waived. This covers service coordination, environmental modifications and adaptive technology not usually paid for by Medicaid.
