The following updates have been made to your CDPHP Medicaid plan:

Children and Family Treatment and Support Services
(Effective January 2019, with additional services added in July 2019)

These new mental health and substance use services (therapy, rehabilitation, and family/peer support services) give children/youth (under age 21) and their families the power to improve their health, well-being, and quality of life. These services strengthen families, and help them make informed decisions about their care. Services are provided at home or in the community.

Children Home and Community Based Services (Effective October 2019)

These services are available for children identified by a Health Home as requiring support and extra care at home and in the community, and who are at risk of going to the hospital or a long term care facility. To access these services, children/youth and their families can speak with a Health Home care manager by calling (518) 473-5569 or emailing
