Dear Amida Care Provider:
We are writing to notify you about an amendment to the earlier March 17 New York State Department of Health (DOH) directive related to COVID-19, advising that all Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) programs have been suspended until further notice. Please read the DOH Memorandum regarding the telehealth and telephonic services available to ADHC programs, “ Comprehensive Guidance Regarding Use of Telehealth including Telephonic Services During the COVID-19 State of Emergency.”

Amida Care would like to ensure that all of your patients who receive ADHC services are still able to receive medical care from their Primary Care Provider. Through this link , you can access a listing of Behavioral Health providers who have capacity to provide telehealth/telephonic services .
Please feel free to contact Amida Care Provider Services with questions or concerns at 1-800-556-0674 or providerservices@amidacareny.org
