OPWDD posting of Qualifications Document Summary Presentation

Acting Commissioner Delaney Announces Posting of Qualifications Document Summary Presentation

10/03/18

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

As previously announced, the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has extended the timeframe for public comment on the qualification document posted in late August which outlines the requirements for the creation of specialized Managed Care Plans:  https://opwdd.ny.gov/news_and_publications/commissioners-message-news/acting-commissioner-delaney-announces-extension

The deadline for public comment was extended by two weeks until October 17 to provide extra time for people who are having difficulty reading through this large technical document.

 As promised, OPWDD has recorded a presentation to outline the points made in this document for easier understanding. The presentation is available at the following link https://opwdd.ny.gov/providers_staff/managed_care/providers (about halfway down the page).

We would like to encourage you to provide your comments on this document to peoplefirstwaiver@opwdd.ny.gov prior to the extended October 17 deadline.

 Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide your feedback. OPWDD will be planning public forums across the state in November which will provide individuals and family members with an opportunity to learn more about the steps New York State is taking to improve supports and services.

 

Sincerely,
Kerry A. Delaney
Acting Commissioner
