The Brooklyn Health Home was established to coordinate medical and behavioral healthcare services for Medicaid patients. It is built on the foundation of a successful program developed at Maimonides, along with many community-based organizations with funding provided by New York State.


If you are a Medicaid recipient or believe you may qualify for Medicaid, think about the following questions:

  • Do you have chronic medical or mental health conditions for which you need regular doctor’s care?
  • Do you have a doctor you can see when you need to?
  • How many times have you been in the emergency room or hospital in the past six months? Twelve months?
  • Do you have a safe place to live?
  • Do you have someone in your life to help you whenever you need help?
  • Do you have difficulty keeping medical appointments? 
Brooklyn Health Home will connect you with
  • Health care providers
  • Mental health and substance abuse providers
  • Medications
  • Housing services 
  • Social services (food, benefits, and transportation)
  • Other community programs that will support and assist you.
