The New York State Department of Health (DOH) is continuing its efforts to transition participants in the New York State Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver Program into managed care and the Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Program. The Health Department continues its efforts despite wide spread opposition from TBI Waiver participants and other stakeholders including the Brain Injury Association of New York State.
The transition has serious implications for all TBI Waiver participants and may jeopardize their continued eligibility or the types of services they receive.
A workgroup meeting has been scheduled by DOH for Wednesday March 1, 2017 10:00 am -12:00pm, but an agenda has not been announced. [nothing like waiting to last moment to surprise everyone, but typical of the attitude of the Health Department to persons with a brain injury]
Stakeholders are invited to either attend in person in Albany at the Office of the Division of Long Term Care: One Commerce Plaza, 99 Washington Avenue, room 1613, or via webinar/conference call.
