Our Story

Care Design New York was created with the involvement and participation of over 70 agencies with long and successful histories of specializing in the provision of services to children and adults with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Our story is rooted specifically in the provision of Medicaid Service Coordination. The agencies recognized that with the requirement for New York State to provide Medicaid Service Coordination in a conflict-free way, and to increase the provision of that service to a more elevated “Care Management”, they wanted to be involved and on the forefront of that transformation. We are stronger with the involvement of all of our partners. One in particular, Partners Health Plan (PHP), is the only managed care health plan for individuals with IDD in New York State.

Our mission is to assist individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.

Our Beliefs and Values

We believe that all services available to families and individuals with developmental disabilities should be:

  • Person centered
  • Holistic
  • Individualized
  • Responsive to changing needs
  • Culturally sensitive and ethnically diverse
  • Provided right in your Community
  • Based on individual choice

How Will We Achieve the Transition of Medicaid Service Coordination Services to Care Management Services Together?

MSCs transitioning to care manager positions will be directly employed by Care Design NY from the start of operations July 1, 2018; however, our goal is to have them continue to be located at their current agency location for some time, as this will ensure the most effective service provision to individuals.

We will work with you, and your current service providers, to assist you to identify your life goals to develop a Life Plan for specific to your needs and desires.

We will use electronic documentation and communication custom-built care management software specifically tailored to meet individual needs, including the needs of children.

    Where We Are

    What if someone wants to choose Care Design NY but it does not appear that you are providing services in their county of residence?

    OPWDD and DOH have determined that CCOs may provide services to individuals who are currently served by the CCOs affiliated MSC agencies in neighboring counties of the CCOs approved service area. Thus, if your MSC agency is affiliated with CDNY, then you may select them to provide services even if you do not see your county highlighted on our map.
