Here’s what you need to know

On April 1, Independence Care System will open the first and only “health home” in New York State specializing in helping people with physical disabilities stay healthy and independent, in their communities. A “health home” is not a home. It is a program designated by New York State to provide care coordination for Medicaid-eligible residents with multiple health conditions. The goal is to make sure members get the care and services they need to be as healthy as possible. Health Home services do not replace MLTC services. They provide an additional level of assistance available to qualifying ICS members who enroll in VNSNY CHOICE.

As a current ICS member you are very likely eligible to join the new ICS. Interested? Read a letter in English or Spanish about joining the ICS Health Home. Then fill out the consent form and give it to an ICS staff person, email it to us at or fax it to 718-907-1670. Here is the form in English, Spanish, Russian and Chinese.

Filling out the form is easy! Click here to see how  or watch the video below.
