Health Homes Serving Children (HHSC)

The New York State Health Home Program was launched in 2012. While children who meet the Health Home eligibility requirements have been eligible for Health Home enrollment since that time, it has been the intent of the State to work with existing Health Homes and other providers to tailor New York State´s Health Home Model to better serve children and to recognize the important differences in the approach to care management and planning for children and adults. The links below provide important information, guidance and presentation/webinars that has been developed by the State (e.g. The New York State Department of Health, the Office of Mental Health, the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, and the Office of Children and Family Services) in consultation with Health Homes, Managed Care Plans, children´s advocates and other stakeholders to tailor the Health Home model to better serve children. The Health Home Serving Children’s (HHSC) program was launched in December 2016, with 16 Health Homes designated to serve children. Of the 16 designated Health Homes, 13 of these Health Homes were already serving adults.
