OPWDD Announces Public Forums for Individuals and Families to Learn More About New Care Coordination Organizations

Comments ( 0 )
The Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) is making an important improvement to the way services are coordinated. The Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC) program which is currently used to coordinate services will be replaced by a new and improved program called Health Home Care Management beginning July 1, 2018. Health Home Care Management will continue to provide the service coordination that people currently receive, and will also provide coordination of other services, such as health care and mental health supports. Health Home Care Management Services will be provided by Care Coordination Organizations. To provide you with information about the transition, each forum will be hosted by OPWDD’s Regional Office Director and the CCO representatives across the State. These forums are intended to educate the people we support about the transition. In order to accommodate the greatest number of individuals with developmental disabilities and their family members, we ask that you attend no more than one People First Care Coordination public forum. The same information will be presented at all regional forums, regardless of location and date. You are cordially invited to attend the forum most convenient to your location: HUDSON VALLEY April 12th – 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thiells and v/c to Tarrytown Office in Westchester Hudson Valley DDRO 5 Wilbur Road Thiells, NY REGISTRATION CONTACT PERSON: VALERIE AUSTIN – valerie.j.austin@opwdd.ny.gov – 845-947-6060
