Health Homes: All Your Health Providers on One Team....

What is a Health Home?

A Health Home helps you coordinate all the services that your family is receiving. From medical care, to counseling, to social services, our goal is to have everyone working as a team for you.  To reach this goal, our Health Home care managers work with all your current care providers to help you create a single plan of care that builds on your family’s strengths and addresses your individual concerns.  When additional services are needed, our care mangers can assist you in getting those as well.

A Health Home is a free service for people who qualify for Medicaid and have certain conditions and needs.

For more information, or to make a referral, please call  1-866-617-0065 .
