Service coordinators assist individuals with disabilities and their caregivers in accessing services. We can help provide access to a range of support including in-home services, transportation, education, day programs, vocational training, recreation, and medical needs. We also offer planning services for families to help provide access to respite services, guardianship information, and caregiver support groups. Our ultimate goal is to help our individuals become as independent as possible and to help families and caregivers in achieving these goals.
Service Coordination is available to anyone ages 4 or older that is a resident of Queens and has a documented developmental disability.
Medicaid Service Coordination
Medicaid Service Coordinators (MSC’s) provide assistance and advocacy to program participants. Participants must have Medicaid. If you do not have Medicaid, please see our Non-Medicaid Service Coordination. Service Coordinators implement an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) that is developed to meet the specific needs of each of our consumers. MSC’s provide access to a wide variety of services including medical, vocational, residential, respite, and recreational programs. All services are provided in accordance with the ISP.
Non-Medicaid Service Coordination
Non-Medicaid Service Coordination (or Family Support) is a service for individuals who do not have Medicaid benefits. Service Coordinators assist in applying for financial entitlements and the Medicaid Waiver. ANIBIC does provide several programs for those without Medicaid and service coordinators can assist in accessing them. For more information, please see Family Services.
