How to Enroll
To get started in the enrollment process for CenterLight TeamCare, just give us a call at 1-877-226-8500, 7 days a week, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. TTY users should call 711. If you are transferring from a Managed Long Term Care Plan, we will send a nurse to meet with you and your caregiver to discuss your care needs and long-term options in detail. If necessary, we’ll help you navigate the government approval process to expedite coverage and services. We’ll formulate an individual care plan designed to meet your specific needs. You may also contact us by filling in the form on the right.
If you are new to Managed Long Term Care, we will refer you to the Conflict-Free Evaluation and Enrollment Center (CFEEC), phone number 1-855-222-8350. Maximus (New York Medicaid Choice), in cooperation with CFEEC, will then conduct an evaluation using a tool called the Uniform Assessment System (UAS) to determine your eligibility for community-based long term care. Individuals who are deemed eligible for enrollment will receive education from CFEEC regarding plans in the area. If you are interested in enrolling into CenterLight, we advise you to inform CFEEC of your preference.
