Care Management Program Development


It is OPWDD's goal to improve benefit coordination, quality of care and individual outcomes over the full range of health care including developmental disabilities, behavioral health and physical health.

Following recommendations from the Transformation Panel, OPWDD is exploring managed care options that provide care coordination and service options for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD). That includes assessing two existing managed care model demonstrations that are available in parts of New York for people with I/DD: FIDA-IDD and PACE.

Fully Integrated Duals Advantage (FIDA-IDD)

FIDA-IDD, offered through Partner’s Health Plans, offers more coordinated care opportunities for people to direct their own services, be involved in care planning, and live independently in the community. FIDA-IDD is currently available in New York City, Long Island, Rockland and Westchester Counties.

Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)

PACE is a managed long-term care health plan that provides all healthcare and other services needed for seniors to stay healthy and live in their community. This program for people who are 55 or older is now being piloted to include people with I/DD through ArchCare’s Senior Life Program.  ArchCare offers this PACE program in New York, Bronx and Staten Island boroughs.   For more information on PACE, download our brochure Managed Care-Understanding PACE
