New York 1115 Waiver Resource Center

In January 2024, CMS granted $7.5B in support to the 1115 Medicaid Waiver, launching New York into a new era of health equity.

This pivotal moment invites Social Care Networks (SCNs) to bridge Health Related Social Needs (HRSN) and provide comprehensive care for all New Yorkers. Foothold Technology stands at the forefront, your experienced navigator through the complex landscape of EHR and care coordination, ready to propel SCNs from inception to full operational strength.

Once SCNs are chosen in June 2024, organizations will have only 6 months to complete implementation. We are ready to swiftly meet that deadline and help you know exactly what to do next.
