Health Home Care Management
A “Health Home” is not a place.
It is a group of health care and service providers working together to make sure that your Child gets the services and care they need to stay healthy.
If your Child is under 21 years old and A Medicaid recipient who has complex physical and/or behavioral health needs, he or she may be eligible for Health Home Care Management.
Your Child’s appropriateness for Health Home Care Management is determined by many different circumstances. Take a look at our Family Brochure on this page and contact Brittany Piccolo at (518) 833-4951 firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
