You may have heard about changes by New York State’s Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) that will affect the Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC) services you receive. These changes are part of OPWDD’s “People First Care Coordination” initiative that will add the coordination of people’s health and wellness services to their current developmental disabilities Individualized Service Plan.
As more information emerges from OPWDD, we want to share it with you in the most accurate and timely manner. Due to the rapidly evolving nature of this topic, all future communication will be conducted electronically. The Arc is maintaining a Web page with Frequently Asked Questions and the ability for you to sign up for email updates.
