Integrated Care Initiative, Phase 1

Rhody Health Options (RHO) is a new health care option for people with Medicare and Medicaid coverage and  people with Medicaid  who receive long-term services and supports. It started in November 2013 through a contract with Neighborhood Health Plan of Rhode Island and is designed to manage just the Medicaid covered benefits.  It doesn't change a person's Medicare, Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan.  The name of the program offered through Neighborhood is called UNITY. More information on UNITY is available at Neighborhood UNITY.   Rhody Health Options/Neighborhood UNITY is voluntary. Members can disenroll at anytime.

There is another community-based program called PACE that is also available for eligible individuals. PACE started in 2005 and offers a community-based program for people over age 55 who have Medicaid only or Medicare/Medicaid but also require a 'high' or 'highest' level of care need.  Please contact PACE directly for more information. (401)490-6566 or toll-free 877-781-7223 or www.pace-ri.org
