Partners Health Plan is New York State’s only fully integrated duals advantage plan dedicated to serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.  By combining coverage and provider networks for Medicare, Medicaid, and IDD services, Partners is able to provide its members a cohesive, easy-to-navigate plan of care that is tailored to each individual’s needs.  Partners is also able to draw from the support and experience of its long-established and trusted sponsor agencies: NYSARC and ADAPT Community Network (formerly United Cerebral Palsy of New York City), which are both leading providers of programs and services for people with developmental disabilities.  With this strong backing and singular focus on the IDD community, Partners Health Plan is the premier health/IDD services plan in New York State.


Partners Health Plan currently services New York City and the counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, and Westchester.  In addition to its FIDA program, Partners will begin enrollment in its new Medicaid Managed Care plan in 2019.
