Children’s Health Homes is a newly formed entity established to plan for and operate as a Health Home for Children. CHHUNY uses a model of care management. This model works on family strengths and also ensures that families have “voice of choice” at every stage in the care management process.
CHHUNY was created in order to provide quality family-driven, youth-guided care management to children and youth with needs in the region by partners experienced in both managing and providing care to children and their families. This is done primarily through a care manager who oversees and provides access to all of the services the individual needs to assure good health. CHHUNY is available in Allegany and Cattaraugus counties.
Eligibility to enter this program is age restricted from birth to 21, enrolled in Medicaid and have one or more of the following: at least two chronic conditions, Diagnosed Severe Mental Illness (SMI) including Severe Emotional Disturbance (SED) or HIV. Pending approval from CMS, “trauma, and at risk for another chronic condition” will be added to these eligibility criteria.Contacts:
