Racker has experts on staff that will be happy to work with you to determine if a child is eligible.
At Racker, we understand caring for your child can be a complicated and often exhausting experience. In response to the needs of the families we serve, we are proud to have joined together with the Children’s Health Home of Upstate New York (CHHUNY) to provide Care Management Services that put your family first.
We understand families spend countless hours being transferred from department to department trying to get critical answers and information regarding your child’s services. When you enroll in a Health Home, your Care Manager becomes your key point of contact in managing the services for your child.
Critical to a healthy child is ensuring each service provider works together and always in the best interest of the child. A family’s Care Manager will have access to information on each service their child is receiving, enabling them to stay in constant communication and eliminating redundancy of service. The vast network also provides linkages to related services such as Adult Health Homes and many more.
The Care Manager is an independent position that works for you. Following the CHHUNY model of care, this position strives to learn about the unique needs of each family and work with them to make the most appropriate decisions for the family.
Families have the choice to select from a number of approved Children’s Health Homes authorized by the New York State Department of Health. The CHHUNY network, of which Racker is a member, is New York State’s largest and serves 54 of the 61 counties in New York State. This large network not only gives families access to largest list of providers and it care managers but the services can travel with you.
