Sea of Yellow
Hundreds of Teachers, Teacher Assistants and Parents (some with their kids in strollers) came to the Town Hall / Rally on June 25th


Over the past two months, you’ve probably heard someone say “OPWDD has a workgroup on that topic.” Just to keep you up to date, some of the groups have met and others have yet to meet, but either way, we will keep our members up to date via the IAC committees, the membership meetings, and this newsletter. Be assured that IAC is well represented on each group, which are: Higher Needs, Direct Care Hiring Crisis, Clinic/APG Rates, CAS and the Development of Risk-Adjusted Rates, Value-Based Payment Implementation, At-Risk Providers, Cost Report Accuracy/OMIG Audit Protocol, and the ICF program conversions.
