The Champions for Children's Health Program
NAC serves as a Care Management Agency as part of the New York State Medicaid Health Home Program. With a team of Care Managers, NAC offers individualized case management and care coordination to children up to age 21 with medical and/or mental health challenges and their families.
A Care Manager works one-on-one with a child and their family. They ensure that all of the providers involved in the child’s care communicate with one another and collaborate in the development of a Plan of Care, tailored to meet the child’s unique medical, mental health and social service needs. Children and their families receive assistance with service referrals, scheduling and attending appointments as well as treatment compliance and follow up. The Care Manager offers individualized support and advocacy for the child and family and assists with transitions from hospitalization.
Health Home care management services are offered to eligible Medicaid beneficiaries citywide.
