Medicaid Service Coordination

All Ages / NYC & Westchester

Help Is on Your Side

Caring for a person with an intellectual / developmental disability can be a challenge. It’s tough for a caregiver to navigate the system, find the services, housing, assistance with daily living, training, respite and health care that they need. It’s even difficult to qualify for services and set up a plan.

Our Medicaid Service Coordinators are here to help. We guide people with intellectual / developmental disabilities and their circle of support — family members, caregivers, advocates — through this maze. The process starts with finding and qualifying for the services needed. We then create and implement an Individualized Service Plan based on the unique desires, interests, and needs of each person. With our help, the maze can become a straight path to achieve personal goals.

We help people create and implement individualized plans for success based on the unique desires, interests, and needs of each person. We are dedicated to providing person-centered, family-driven care based on Personal Outcome Measures (POMs).

Medicaid Service Coordination

Regardless of family income, many of the services needed by people with intellectual / developmental disabilities are funded through Medicaid. Our service coordinators help people and their families qualify for Medicaid, and advocate for them throughout the application process. We then meet with each person and family in our care on a regular basis to make sure they are receiving the services they need, are satisfied with them, and that adjustments are made as needed.

Our person-centered services start with finding out what matters most to each person so we can help them achieve their personal dreams, whether that dream is independence or healthy interdependence. We help set their goals, explore the avenues open to them, and access the resources they need to put their plans into action. This process includes members of their circle of support, such as family members and advocates, whenever possible.

We can connect people with:

  • Medical, mental health and therapy services
  • Housing
  • Employment assistance
  • Assistance with daily living
  • Training in activities for daily living
  • Socialization skills
  • Respite and recreation

Personal Outcomes Measures

We are strongly committed to identifying each person’s strengths, dreams, and aspirations. Those strengths and aspirations provide the roadmap for each person’s journey to a better quality of life. In doing so, we exceed the standards for Personal Outcome Measures (POMs) set by the Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), whose guidelines we follow.
