Children's Health Home of Upstate New York
A Children’s Health Home is a care management service model where ALL of a child’s caregivers communicate with one another so that a family’s needs are addressed appropriately. NACS will provide a care manager to eligible families, children and youth to provide access to services assuring they have everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital. The Care Manager supports services that a family may already be receiving and will help families get new ones if necessary.
Children from birth to age 21 must be enrolled in Medicaid AND meet eligibility criteria of qualifying conditions:
· Serious Emotional Disturbance / Complex Trauma
· 2 or more chronic conditions; determined by NY State.
