OPWDD Stakeholder Webinar Sessions

The Office for People With Developmental Disabilities will be hosting webinar sessions to provide stakeholders with an overview of the recently announced 1115 Waiver Transition Plan, which is currently open for public comment prior to its submission to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. 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 launching Care Coordination Organization/Health Home Services. The goal of the activities laid out in the Transition Plan is to help to make our system more flexible and responsive to the needs of individuals and families.

Each webinar will cover the same material and is designed to assist stakeholders with their review of the Transition Plan. The webinars are open to the public and all interested parties are welcome to participate. To allow for maximum participation, please register for only one webinar at one of the following links:
