What is a Children's Health Home?

Health Home is a care management service model whereby all of an individual's caregivers communicate with one another so that all of a patient's needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This is done primarily through a "care manager" who oversees and provides access to all of the services an individual needs to assure that they receive everything necessary to stay healthy, out of the emergency room and out of the hospital. Health records are shared among providers so that services are not duplicated or neglected.
All children/youth must meet the following eligibility requirements to be considered for enrolloment:  1.  The child/youth is under the age of 21, enrolled in Medicaid and resides in a CHHUNY county.  2.   The child/youth must meet the NYS DOH eligibility.  3.   Child/youth has significant behavioral, medical or social risk factors which can be addressed through care management. 

Who is CHHUNY?

The Children’s Health Homes of Upstate New York, LLC (CHHUNY) is a newly formed entity established to plan for and operate as a Health Home for Children. CHHUNY is using a model of care management based upon the belief that every family has strengths and that families are the natural and most effective drivers of their care. This model also ensures that families have ‘‘voice and choice,’’ at every stage in the care management process.

Why Choose CHHUNY?

CHHUNY has been 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.

At a time when the Medicaid system is increasingly driven by the adult system, there are only two Health Homes that are operated exclusively by children’s providers – CHHUNY and the Collaborative for Children and Families serving New York City. Our Health Homes are partnering together to ensure that the children’s community continues to have a strong leadership voice.
