A Health Home Could Be Right for You

Staying on top of all your health care needs can be hard. The good news is that there’s help. The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) offers the Medicaid Health Home program to assist you in staying healthy. You don’t have to change your health care plan or your doctors. And your Medicaid benefits will stay the same. All Health Home services are free and joining the program is your choice!

How does it work?

With Health Home, you will have a care manager who will work with you and your current doctors to help you get the care you need, when you need it. Also, your care manager will help you:

  • Find a doctor if you need one
  • Manage your medications and medical treatments
  • Get social services you may need, such as housing and food assistance
  • Take better care of yourself when you go home after being in a hospital

Who is eligible for this program?

Members are selected for this program by the NYSDOH based on health care usage, their medical conditions or health care needs. Eligible conditions include asthma, COPD, diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, substance abuse or HIV/AIDS. All Enhanced Care Plus (HARP) members are eligible for the Health Home program.
