Hudson Valley Service Providers, LLC (HVSP) is a group of over twenty Hudson Valley agencies who provide quality, community-based support for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families,.
While we are separate and distinct organizations, we share a commitment to quality services, the right for people with disabilities to have choices in their lives, and the need for Hudson Valley agencies to effectively collaborate wherever, and whenever possible.
Hudson Valley Service Providers (HVSP) was formed in 2016 to provide advocacy, offer collaboration and support to individuals with disabilities, their circle of support and the organizations who provide services throughout the Hudson Valley region. The family of agencies that are members of HVSP share the goal to ensure that each of the 4,500 people who participate in services provided by our organizations and their supports have a voice, choice and advocacy allowing them to live rich and full lives.
From the start, HVSP provided family forums to listen to people’s needs and provide information on the emerging trends in IDD services. There were also weekly meetings where leaders of the organizations providing services to people with developmental disabilities would discuss advocacy on new policies and legislation, and the impact of the impending transformation plan implementation.
Beginning in 2017, HVSP members began working on a collective response to the Community Care Organization (CCO) request for proposals issued by OPWDD.
Initially, there was a plan to create a CCO solely for the Hudson Valley, but after meetings with LIFEPlan it was agreed that working together to ensure quality care coordination would offer stronger advocacy and voice. HVSP became a limited liability corporation (LLC) and purchased four LIFEPlan board seats. Today HVSP works closely with LIFEPlan on the development of Care Coordination for our region.
This year HVSP members are working together to develop an IPA. The Hudson Valley IPA will serve as an intermediary between the individual agencies and the large Managed Care Organizations (MCO) that are slated to begin in August of 2019.
The collective voice of HVSP agencies, providing services to 4,500 individuals across the Hudson Valley region, is essential in ensuring that all providers - large and small - have a voice in key MCO discussions and decisions.

HVSP represents over 4,000 individuals with disabilities, across the Hudson Valley region.
A Care Coordination Organization (CCO) is a specialized Health Home for individuals with Intellectual and developmental disabilities. This new, comprehensive service takes a person-centered approach to determining the services that best fit an individual’s needs.
The Health Home model combines developmental disability services and support with health and wellness services, delivering a greater focus on outcomes and the positive impact they have on individuals.
We have partnered with LIFEPlan CCO NY, the only parent-led CCO in New York State, and serving over 17,300 individuals with disabilities in a 38-county region.
