About Partners Health Plan

We’re dedicated to supporting people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities.

We’ll make the transition to managed care easy for you and your family.



Partners Health Plan (PHP), a not-for-profit managed care organization, is dedicated solely to providing supports and services for persons with intellectual and other developmental disabilities (IDD). It was founded by AHRC Nassau and is now governed by all five Downstate AHRCs/ARCs. PHP was developed by the same providers who have effectively served individuals with IDD in the community for decades and we are committed to employing a person-centered approach to care planning and service delivery that addresses the needs of the whole person. Planning and developing this model has taken several years, and PHP is the culmination of a rich and robust collaboration among a diverse group of providers and other stakeholders dedicated to serving this population.
