The Care Design NY mission is to assist individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.

Compassion: The capacity to appreciate what others think and feel. The recognition of the worth of each person and the treatment of individual rights and preferences with respect, honor, and fairness.
Diversity: The commitment to foster an environment of respect and inclusion for employees, members, families and all stakeholders.
Excellence: The continual emphasis on innovation, increasing knowledge, and delivering the highest quality supports and services.
Honesty: The foundation of which trust is built and truth is communicated.
We are committed to our roles as a Care Coordination Organization/Health Home (CCO/HH), and we believe each Care Design NY member has the potential to live a quality life through the careful planning and delivery of physical, mental health, and support from natural supports and community resources.
As a Care Coordination Organization/Health Home, we believe and approach our work with the following driving forces:
Care Design NY will support you to design a plan to incorporate the services and supports important to you. Our care management services will build upon the foundation created by service coordination to create and deliver a more comprehensive coordination of services and supports for individuals.
Care Design NY is made up of over 120 partner agencies throughout New York State, which provide services for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
At Care Design NY, our care managers are compassionate, experienced, and knowledgeable, many with long-standing relationships with the individuals and families they support.
As a Care Coordination Organization/Health Home, Care Design NY Care Managers assist over 27,000 individuals and their families in a person–centered approach with holistic service planning to ensure the delivery of integrated quality care that supports the needs of individuals with I/DD so they may live a quality life.
Our service area includes 30 counties in New York State, from Clinton County to Suffolk County on Long Island.
Individuals and families are at the center of all we do at Care Design NY. We will assist you, and advocate with and for you, to ensure that you have information and resources to make informed choices in your life.
We will work in partnership with you to achieve the life you desire, ensuring that you have access to the support and services that are needed by providing Health Home Care Management. The Health Home for individuals with intellectual and/or disabilities provides specialized services to coordinate care, combining developmental disability services and supports with health, wellness and behavioral health services.
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.
Managed Care is the next step toward ensuring the best care coordination with more flexibility and choice in your services resulting in better outcomes for you.
New York State has been working carefully to design the right Managed Care program for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
