CP State submits comments on Medicaid Redesign Team waiver

CP State recently submitted comments on the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) research and demonstration waiver #11-W-00114/2.

“We agree with the intent and appreciate the acknowledgement stated at the beginning of the waiver document noting the impact that COVID-19 has had on the intellectual/developmental disability (I/DD) community. Further, we appreciate the stated recognition that social care and health care need to be more fully integrated as part of the fabric of the Medicaid program. And the goals, as stated, make sense and are laudable.
However, throughout this document we do not see that there is a clear connection to and allowance for the I/DD sector’s impact on the entirety of the NYS health delivery system.”
