Our Story

Care Design NY 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 (I/DD). 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 I/DD in New York State.
