American Business Institute Corp. (d/b/a ABI Health Care Agency)
ABI Health Care Agency (ABI), licensed by the New York State Department of Health, is a home care agency dedicated to the provision of home- and community-based health care. ABI provides compassionate and high-quality care for thousands of patients throughout the Five Boroughs of New York City and Nassau County.
Although ABI is a provider of home care assistance, it is also committed to enabling patients to achieve their highest levels of self-sufficiency, and to realize their highest potential in daily self-care activities.
The company's services include nursing, home health care, personal care, physical therapy, nutrition, homemaking, housekeeping, respiratory therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and medical social work. This array of services is provided by thousands of well-trained and vetted home health aides, nurses, physical therapists, and nutritionists.
ABI FI Corp.
ABI is uniquely poised to enter a new arena of service provision via its subsidiary, ABI FI Corp.
ABI FI was created to provide fiscal intermediary services for patients choosing the option of self-selected care under Medicaid's Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), which is presided over by the New York State Department of Health.
Under this statewide Medicaid program, patients have an alternative way of receiving their home care services. They have significantly more control over who provides their care and the manner in which it is provided. In lieu of the former requirement for assigning a home care vendor or agency to control selection training and the scheduling of home health care aides, now the patient, a family member, friend or guardian can direct the patient’s care and tailor it specifically to his or her needs in order to maximize results.
The CDPAP program is administered through a statewide network of Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) plans. ABI FI has pre-contracted with many such MLTC plans to become the portal through which patients can enroll in the program. Now, all patients living in the state of New York can easily enroll in the program through ABI FI.
Receiving care at home, from a loved one, or from a trusted friend, can result in the most satisfying and effective of your care options. However, providing such care can be an overwhelming experience for the caregiver, particularly if that person does not have access to the vast resources and support ABI FI can provide.
Fortunately, we are here to help. ABI FI, in partnership with many MLTCs in New York State, provides secure and effective administration of the CDPAP program for you and your caregiver.
With and through its MLTCs, ABI FI provides the framework for the process, from application to payment distribution. ABI FI will efficiently and professionally process all applications for the program. With its array of home care resources, ABI provides personal support and access to other specialized services that a caregiver working alone cannot provide.
Join ABI FI, and get on the path to better and more fulfilling care.
