MEDICAID SERVICE COORDINATION
Our Medicaid Service Coordination program pairs developmentally disabled children and adults with trained and experienced service coordinators who develop a tailored plan to gain access to the necessary services in the community that meet the needs of each individual. Our service coordinators meet each individual in his or her home, as well as in the community, to provide advocacy, assistance and support. The Service Coordinator can arrange for services from an array of government, community and private agencies and organizations. This program is available to any individual with a developmental disability residing in Westchester County who meets eligibility requirements. Our Medicaid Service Coordinators advocate for government benefits such as Medicaid, Social Security and Food Stamps. Services Coordinators provide information and referrals for: counseling, programs
and service enrollment, camp and recreational activities, respite, guardianship and in-home services. Assistance is also provided in the completion of applications and administrative procedures related to service enrollment, service eligibility and government benefits.
INFORMATION AND REFERRAL
Provides information on topics such as disabilities, services offered within the community, government benefits, support groups and case management services to all interested individuals.
