Dec 17, 2021 – NY State of Health, the official health plan Marketplace of New York, recently announced a new pilot program called NY State of Health, Care at Home. This pilot is designed to help New Yorkers shop for safe and reliable home care services for either themselves or a loved one.
The pilot program is an easy way to connect with home care professionals from licensed home care services agencies (LHCSAs) on a private pay basis. It will initially launch in Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties, but will expand statewide in the future.
“As the Marketplace begins our ninth open enrollment period to help New Yorkers enroll in quality, affordable health insurance, we are excited to also offer this new connection for finding safe, local and reliable home care professionals in Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties,” said NY State of Health Executive Director Danielle Holahan. “This program will help New Yorkers access the home care services they need to maintain their independence and stay safely in their homes and communities for as long as possible.”
These home care services are considered non-medical services. They are intended to help people with daily living tasks so that they can live at home independently. These include assistance with dressing, bathing, toileting, laundry, cooking, cleaning, medication management, and more. Home care services often allow individuals to age comfortably at home instead of in a nursing home.
Through NY State of Health, Care at Home, you can easily enter a zip code to search for nearby agencies that offer professional and reliable home care services. You can filter based on you or your loved one’s specific needs and connect with an LHCSA to schedule a telephone or in-home consultation.
