  • Veterans Outreach Center, Inc. Serving Our Service Members: Replicating and Spreading Best Practices for Community-based Services for Vets and Their Families Priority Area: Veterans' Health $96,586

    Veterans’ health and wellbeing are the responsibility of both the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and other clinical and social service delivery systems. However, nearly half of New York State veterans prefer to receive care outside the VA system; therefore, it is vital to support community-based clinical and social services. In addition, 42% of veterans do not have a good understanding of the benefits available to them, indicating a significant need for improved outreach services. To address the needs of the veteran community, NYSHealth awarded a grant to the Veterans Outreach Center, Inc., (VOC), to design and develop a blueprint to spread and replicate its successful model of service for helping meet the needs of veterans and their families in other organizations throughout New York State.

  • National Development and Research Institutes (NDRI) NYSHealth’s Center for Excellence in Integrated Care: Tracking Progress in New York State Addiction and Mental Health Providers’ Provision of Outpatient Integrated Care Priority Area: Integrating Mental Health and Substance Use Services $282,290

    NYSHealth established the Center for Excellence in Integrated Care (CEIC) in 2008 with a four-year grant to NDRI. CEIC has employed various methods to provide technical assistance to addiction and mental health programs across New York State to help them achieve integrated care for both conditions. The primary component of the initiative involves conducting on-site assessments of a program’s capability to provide integrated care with a tool called the Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction [Mental Health] Treatment (DDCA[MH]T) index. To measure whether changes had occurred since the first site visits, CEIC conducted a second round of the DDCA[MH]T assessments with a representative sample of 150 programs across New York State.

  • Long Island Home Planning for the Integration of Mental Health Services in Pediatric Care Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $77,761

    The Children’s Mental Health Act of 2006 requires states to develop statewide plans to provide comprehensive, coordinated mental health prevention, early intervention, and treatment services for children through age 18. However, the New York State Office of Mental Health acknowledges that there are still service gaps and reports that services need to be readily available and provided in a larger variety of settings, like the home and/or pediatricians’ offices. To fulfill this vision, Long Island Home implemented Project TEACH (Training and Education for the Advancement of Children’s Health), a new State initiative that facilitates the integration of primary care and behavioral health and provides specialized training, consultation, and linkage with mental health treatment for primary care physicians statewide.

  • Consumers Union of United States, Inc Consumer Testing of the Coverage Facts Label Priority Area: Expanding Health Care Coverage $44,260

    Among other goals, Federal health care reform seeks to expand access to quality, affordable health insurance coverage. Achieving that goal hinges on well-functioning insurance markets and consumers understanding the health insurance options available to them. To promote informed decision-making, the Affordable Care Act requires health insurers to use a new, standardized Summary of Benefits and Coverage form (Summary) to convey the benefits and cost-sharing provisions of their health plan offerings. A required component within the Summary is a consumer aid called the “Coverage Facts Label.” The Label will take traditional health plan information and calculate what consumers would have to pay out of pocket under different medical scenarios. With support from the New York State Health Foundation and the Missouri Foundation for Health, Consumers Union conducted testing of the Coverage Facts Label prototype to answer questions regarding how the Label would help consumers understand their health benefits coverage.

  • Coalition of New York State Public Health Plans (Affinity Health Plan, Inc.) Maintaining Continuity of Coverage for Low-Income New Yorkers Priority Area: Expanding Health Care Coverage $96,140

    Effective implementation of health reform requires a seamless system that will allow individuals to easily transition between different types of coverage and remain insured as their incomes and circumstances fluctuate. Many people are expected to move back and forth between Medicaid and private polices available in the exchange. As low-income families shift between different insurance programs, there is a risk that they could experience breaks in coverage or other disruptions that undermine their continuity of care. The Coalition of New York State Public Health Plans (the Coalition) applied operational knowledge to directly inform how New York State achieves seamless transitions across several coverage programs in the exchange.

  • One River Grants, Inc. Grant writing assistance in response to the Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Chronic Diseases (MIPCD) Priority Area: Expanding Health Care Coverage $20,000

    The success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and its implementation will depend on how states meet the challenges of restructuring and take advantage of various funding opportunities that have been made available under the law. To that end, Grantmakers in Health (GIH) established the GIH State Grant Writing Assistance Fund; a grant-matching program for funders who are interested in offering grant-writing support to state government agencies applying for funding. To take advantage of reform implementation opportunities in New York, the New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) applied for and was awarded this GIH grant match. In 2009, NYSHealth awarded a grant to One River Grants, Inc., a New York State-based grants solicitation and management company, to assist the State in its application for the Medicaid Incentives for Prevention of Chronic Diseases (MIPCD) funding opportunity under Section 4108 of the ACA.
