The IDUHA IPA is a start-up organization formed by 21 not-for-profit New York City human services agencies. IDUHA has a multi-year grant from New York State (NYS) to develop the infrastructure necessary to offer value-based, clinically integrated services to Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) enrollees. In the next few years, the small IDUHA leadership team will be responsible for “standing up” a 21st Century healthcare organization dedicated to improving the quality of care for low-income New Yorkers with serious behavioral health disorders.
The IDUHA IPA network of community-based organizations promotes access to life saving services, increases engagement and retention in care, and advances the dignity and wellbeing of marginalized populations across New York City. IPA member agencies have a long history of addressing the social determinants of health (SDH) of individuals with complex medical, behavioral and long-term care needs that drive a high volume of high cost healthcare interventions. Member agencies provide the following service to address the medical, behavioral health and SDH for these complex populations:
- Care Management / Care Coordination
