CCOs and the Care Manager
The NYS Care Coordination Organization (CCO) offers Care Management, health and wellness services, transitional care, individual and family supports, and community and social supports to those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The Care Manager creates a life plan to identify interests, strengths, needs, and goals of the person with IDD. A life plan helps to eliminate barriers and create better opportunities for a healthier and more meaningful life for individuals with IDD.
The Care Manager creates a life plan working directly with the person they serve, guiding choices and coordinating services. Each life plan is personalized, reflecting a comprehensive approach to needs, wants, and preferences. The life plan is regularly reviewed by the individual and their Care Manager.
We support each person to live their healthiest and most meaningful life.
ACANY will be an employer of choice. The quality of our service will be the industry standard.
