2018 WRAP-UP


Info for Families and Self-advocates on Transition Plan

On December 12, 2017 and December 14, 2017, the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) in collaboration with the Department of Health (DOH) hosted two webinar sessions to provide stakeholders with an overview of the recently announced 1115 Waiver Transition Plan. This Transition Plan is open for public comment until January 5, 2018 prior to its submission to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Transition Plan describes how the services for people with developmental disabilities will move to New York State’s 1115 Waiver and the timelines and steps for initiating Care Coordination Organization/Health Home (CCO/HH) Services. The goal of the activities laid out in the Transition Plan is to help our system become more flexible and responsive to the needs of individuals and families.
