Our care coordination and management services are available in 30 New York State counties, in your primary language, and with a sensitivity to your religious and cultural background. We coordinate disability supports and services, incorporating health and wellness needs.
Your Care Manager has the responsibility to make sure you are supported in all the ways that lead to the healthiest outcomes for you and they take a whole-person approach to understanding your unique needs and how to achieve your desired goals.
