  • UNITE HERE Health Center Development & Implementation of an Innovative Primary Care Model for Low Income Retired Patients with Diabetes Priority Area: Improving Diabetes Prevention $460,042

    The UNITE HERE Health Center (UHC) provides health care services to enrolled union members in the greater New York metropolitan area. UHC developed and implemented a special care center for its patients, which was based on a primary care model designed specifically to improve the care of patients with chronic conditions and that relies heavily on patient care assistants. While health coaching services performed by patient care assistants are typically not covered under traditional plans, UNITE HERE active union workers are reimbursed through a special capitated arrangement. These services are not reimbursed for retired workers who are covered under traditional fee-for-service insurance. In 2008, NYSHealth awarded UNITE HERE Health Center a grant to expand its service delivery model to its older patients with diabetes and address these coverage limitations. This project was funded under NYSHealth’s 2007 Setting the Standard: Advancing Best Practices in Diabetes Management request for proposals (RFP).
