Working at Amida Care
Every day, Amida Care employees have a direct impact on the health and well-being of New Yorkers. Our nonprofit community health plan provides comprehensive coverage and coordinated care to New York City Medicaid members with chronic conditions, including HIV/AIDS and behavioral health disorders. The largest Medicaid managed care special needs health plan (SNP) in New York State, Amida Care delivers an innovative coordinated care program that has improved healthcare quality and reduced costs.
Amida Care is more than a health plan—we strive to create a wellness community. Our Live Your Life program offers free monthly member events held throughout the five boroughs of New York City, where Amida Care members and their guests learn about ways to get and stay healthy physically, mentally, and spiritually. A variety of member engagement activities such as town hall meetings and a Member Advisory Council provide members with opportunities for participation and feedback to ensure that their needs are being met.
