Transitioning to a New Kind of Care
In 2011, several leading provider agencies came together to ensure that care coordination for individuals with I/DD would continue to be managed by experienced provider agencies in an era of Medicaid redesign. To prepare for this transformation, Person Centered Services ran a successful demonstration project to pilot these care coordination services. The pilot program identified gaps in services for the population and helped Person Centered Services develop best practices for the future.
In 2018, the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) will transition from a Medicaid Service Coordination Model (MSC) to a Care Coordination Model. Person Centered Services intends to provide care coordination services across 18 counties in New York State.
The following dates are subject to change according to direction from the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).
Employer will communicate to identified employees that their roles will transition to the CCO on July 1, 2018.
Transitioning employees will be presented with the Person Centered Services' general benefit package.
New hire packets will be delivered, along with published organizational charts listing physical locations.
Care coordination services begin under Person Centered Services.
