Our Story

Care Design New York 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 (IDD). 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 IDD in New York State. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to assist individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to get the supports and services they need to live a quality life.

Our Commitment

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. This newly designed service is a new way to coordinate care, combining developmental disability services and supports with health, wellness and behavioral health services.

Transition Plan

for Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), Health Home Care Management for Individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD), and the Development of Specialized Managed Care
With Federal and State approval, beginning July 1, 2018, New York State initiated the transformation of the State's system of services for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD) to better integrate services, promote the better use of resources to meet growing and changing needs, and become truly person-centered.

Rest assured that Care Design NY will help you; we will advocate with you, and for you, to have access to the most integrated services and all the information you need to make informed choices for a meaningful life.
