Medicaid Health Homes

A "Health Home" is not a physical place; it is a group of health care and service providers working together to make sure you get the care and services you need to stay healthy. Once you are enrolled in a Health Home, you will have a care manager that works with you to develop a care plan. A care plan maps out the services you need, to put you on the road to better health. Some of the services may include:

  • Connecting to health care providers,
  • Connecting to mental health and substance abuse providers,
  • Connecting to needed medications,
  • Help with housing,
  • Social services (such as food, benefits, and transportation) or,
  • Other community programs that can support and assist you.

NYS System of Care Framework

The Systems of Care (SOC) Framework is a coordinated network of services and supports that are organized to meet the physical, mental, social, emotional, education, and developmental needs of children and their families.

Building Systems of Care, by its own designation as “systems” and not “system,” requires cross-system partnerships with the common goal of developing a broad array and continuum of services and supports that are infused with the values of:

  • Family Driven & Youth Guided
  • Community-Based
  • Cultural & Linguistic Competence

Systems of Care refer to the collaborative, coordinated infrastructure within a community to meet the needs of children and families so they can achieve their own definition of success and equitable outcomes.

Systems of Care are implemented at both the systems level (policy, financing, management) and the service/support delivery level.

Regional Interagency Technical Assistance Teams (RiTATs)

Regional Interagency Technical Assistance Teams (RiTATs) meet regularly and use cross-systems collaboration to address system level issues and support the implementation of the System of Care core values and principles within their agency or organization. Family and youth serve as full partners to share the experiences and needs of families and youth served by the System of Care, and facilitate problem solving at the program and policy levels.

The Team serves as a liaison between the New York State-level senior staff members with regard to improving cross systems collaborations. The RiTAT is committed to sharing information and delivering quality technical assistance and consultation to agencies and counties which will enable them to achieve better outcomes for children, youth and families. As collaborative initiatives have grown at the state level, it became evident that leadership and resources at both the state and county level were necessary. Collective and shared knowledge and expertise of the team are used to maximize efforts, avoid duplication and help support evidence-based programming.
