Managed Care

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.


"I believe that Managed Care, if done right, offers the potential for individuals and families to gain better and more timely access to services, and offers service providers the ability to focus more on quality of services and meeting the outcomes desired by individuals and families.”
