Welcome to the Children's Health Home of Upstate New York or CHHUNY!
At a time when Medicaid is increasingly driven by the adult system, it is important that families remain at the center of the decision making process to drive the care management of children and young adults. The collaborative partners behind CHHUNY span across 54 counties in New York State and is made up exclusively of agencies with experience providing services to children. Our core belief that Care Management Services must be driven by the family, Our Health Homes are partnering together to ensure that the children’s community continues to have a strong leadership voice.
Through this site, we hope to offer resources to families, service providers, referral sources, and local government offices to guide families to receive the highest level of care through the New York State Health Home Care Management System.
