A Note from LIFEPlan CCO Board Chairman, Alan Krafchin

I am deeply honored to serve as the chairman of the board of LIFEPlan CCO NY, an organization formed on July 1, 2018 from over 70 organizations who have been trusted partners to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for over 65 years.  The organizations that make up LIFEPlan CCO began working collaboratively several years ago to ensure that throughout the transitions to the Health Home/Care Coordination model, and eventually to Managed Care, we will continue to provide exceptional care and services for individuals and families. We are fortunate to have such a rich history, and to have a dedicated workforce and clear strategy that positioned us to create and implement a care coordination model that puts people first. This is a particularly dynamic time for all of us working with and supporting people with I/DD. Together, we made the transition to a new and enhanced care management system. We continue to work with our providers to adapt to the changes and to ensure individualized, professional caring services for our nearly 18,000 LIFEPlan members. 

On behalf of the LIFEPlan Board of Managers, and all of us at LIFEPlan CCO, I want to express our appreciation to all members and their families for partnering with us on this journey, and to assure you that we remain committed to our mission and vision, and to the communities that we serve. I look forward to working with our members, families and providers as we continue to chart a new future, while delivering on our commitments. 

Thank you.
Alan Krafchin, Ch
