What is a Children's Health Home?

A Health Home is a community-based care management service model whereby all of an individual's caregivers communicate with one another so that all social, physical, and behavioral needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This is done through a dedicated Care Manager who oversees and provides access to all of the services an individual needs to ensure they receive everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital.
All children/youth must meet the following eligibility requirements to be considered for enrolloment: 
1.  The child/youth is under the age of 21, enrolled in Medicaid and resides in a CHHUNY county.
2.   The child/youth must meet the NYS DOH eligibility. 
3.   Child/youth has significant behavioral, medical or social risk factors which can be addressed through care management.
