PHP at ARC

ARC of Rockland, along with 4 other ARCs in the region, is beginning to roll out an exciting new initiative.  We will be involved in a pilot project offering people we support an opportunity to benefit from enhanced care coordination. For those individuals participating in the pilot a registered nurse will become a part of the person’s team to assist in accessing and coordinating services, including medical services.  There will be no changes to the existing supports that the person receives, and the service coordinator /case manager will remain the same. This new service will be an additional resource.

The pilot project is managed by Partners Health Plan, Inc. (PHP) which is jointly governed by five ARC chapters (Suffolk, Nassau, New York City, Rockland and Westchester). Pictured at left, ARC staffers receive information about PHP.

If you have any questions about this initiative, please call Jane Zemon at (845) 267-2500 x3144 or Susan Wallach at (845) 267-2500 x3051.
