A message to our partners from our CEO, Jacob Reider, MD –
- During these challenging times, our Alliance team is here, agile and ready to help you meet the needs of the people we serve together. We know that your resources, people, and finances are being spread thin. If your organization needs help sustaining activities that promote the health of Medicaid members and the uninsured, please submit a request. We will do our best to make the right thing to do, the easy thing to do.
- Please do your best to heed Dr. Fauci’s recommendations and stay at home. Social distancing is not a personal choice. It’s adherence to state and federal directives designed to keep our community healthy and safe. Even leaders should be home. Indeed – it’s more important for leaders of all organizations – including care providers – to show how seriously we’re taking the guidance from public health experts.
- Resilience: Alliance has always been remote capable. We would love to help show you that in-person (on-site) meetings are unnecessary. Yes, you will need to adjust, but we’re here to help. We are hopeful this resource page will help you navigate through the muddy waters of information overload.
Finally – some reflections: our sense of community is stronger than ever, we are showing up for one another, and seeking out those bright spots that keep us hopeful. If you see or hear a bright spot that you’d like to share, please let us know what it is and how we can help carry the light forward!
Mental health is just as important as physical health. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or stress, you are not alone. Call 1-844-863-9314 for free emotional support, consultation, and referral to a provider, or visit the New York State Office of Mental Health resource page.
