WHAT IS A HEALTH HOME?

A Health Home is a care management service model whereby all of an individual’s caregivers communicate with one another so that all of a patient’s needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner.

DID YOU KNOW?

As of January 2012, thousands of New Yorkers with Medicaid will be enrolled into Health Homes as part of the recent New York State Health Care Initiative. Health Home is a term used to describe how health, mental health and substance abuse treatment is coordinated for a person with multiple chronic conditions and their family.

AM I AFFECTED BY THIS CHANGE?

Assignment into a Health Home may apply to you if you are currently on Medicaid and have any of the following conditions:

• Mental Health Problem
• Drug & Alcohol Problem
• Asthma
• Diabetes
• Heart Disease
• Hypertension
• HIV/AIDS

WILL I HAVE TO CHANGE MY TREATMENT or MEDICAL PROVIDER?

No, if you are currently participating in medical, mental or substance abuse treatment, you may continue to receive those services through your existing provider and still receive the care coordination benefits that come with being assigned to a Health Home.

WHAT IS CARE COORDINATION AT MHHC?
