Health Home Serving Children

Northwell Health's Health Home (for children) is a New York State Medicaid care coordination program that provides access to medical, mental health, substance abuse, social and family support services to children who need them. Health Home services are free to those who qualify. Becoming a member is your choice. Your Medicaid and social service benefits will not change.

As a member of our Health Home, you will receive:

  • A resource coordinator to help you set health goals, coordinate care and treatment, and provide education and tools to help you manage your child’s health
  • Assistance with making appointments with doctors and other healthcare providers
  • Help with transportation to and from medical appointments
  • Help with connecting to social services programs
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Access to a 24-hour call center to answer your healthcare questions, so you are never alone

 

How the program works

You will be assigned a resource coordinator who will help you access the health services your child needs. Your resource coordinator will connect with your child’s healthcare providers to coordinate the care and treatments that are best. In addition, your Health Home team may include care managers, outreach specialists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, physical therapists, school personnel, community members, and/or family members who you feel can assist in your child’s personal goals and growth.

How to get started

To be eligible, the patient must be enrolled in Medicaid, be under 21 years old, and have two or more chronic conditions (substance abuse included), or one single qualifying condition. Single qualifying conditions include HIV/AIDS, Serious Emotional Disturbance, and Complex Trauma. Health Home services are free. For more information or to schedule an appointment with a member of our staff, call (888) 680-6501.
