Community First Choice Option (CFCO)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved the State´s Medicaid Plan Amendment to add the Community First Choice Option (CFCO) set of services. CFCO, authorized in the Affordable Care Act, allows states to expand access and availability of long term services and supports.

Provider Directories

Through CFCO, New York State is expanding access and availability by offering some services and supports that have, until now, only been available through waivers. In order to better assist Managed Care Organizations and Local Departments of Social Services with identifying providers of these previously waivered services, we have compiled a list of current providers. This list may or may not include providers already contracting with MLTC plans and Mainstream plans, for these or other services.
