Company opens Oneonta office 

LIFEPlan CCO NY LLC hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday at its Oneonta office in the Westgate Plaza.

The organization is a partnership of more than 72 local, nonprofit organizations serving 38 counties throughout the central, northern, Southern Tier, Hudson Valley and Capital regions of New York, according to a media release. The organization serves more than 18,000 people and employs about 700 professional staff.

Coordinated Care Organizations are a family’s “single access point” for services, according to the release. The enhanced services are coordinated by care managers using electronic records to create a single individualized plan, called a Life Plan, which will replace the current Individualized Service Plan. 

“This new system is revolutionizing the way people with disabilities receive care coordination services,” CEO Nick Cappoletti said. “Under CCOs, people receive one single comprehensive and holistic plan with a greater focus on outcomes, measuring the real, positive impact they have on peoples’ lives. Supports, services and even outside services will be combined for better visibility to the patient, family, caregiver and health care provider. The overall well-being of people with disabilities now holds significant weight in their care.”
