NYS DOH: Reopen Medical Model ADHC Programs
NYS DOH: Reopen Medical Model Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) Programs!
ADHC programs were instructed to close March 17, 2020. Since then, individuals across the State have gone without personal care, therapies and skilled nursing services that cannot be adequately covered through telehealth services. This has resulted in a spike in preventable hospitalizations, nursing home admissions and decompensation of member health and hygiene.
Daryl is one of the thousands of New Yorkers impacted by this closure. You can watch the video clip here.
ADHC remains the ONLY health care entity unable to provide in-person services.
This has gone on for long enough--it's time for the State to reopen ADHC.
