Appendix K Stakeholder Experience Webinar for Families and People Receiving Services

Appendix K Stakeholder Experience Webinar for Families and People Receiving Services
A message from the Ohio Department of Medicaid:

Following last week's email, the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM), Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD), and Department of Aging (ODA) invite you to an open discussion on the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) 1915(c) waiver flexibilities implemented through Appendix K during the federal COVID-19 public health emergency.
At this event, we welcome feedback on your experiences with the waiver programs and any recommended changes to the programs. Your feedback will be considered as the agencies work together to identify which flexibilities will continue past November 2023.
Appendix K Stakeholder Experience: Developmental Disability-Based Waiver Participants and Stakeholder Advocacy Groups
·      Date: Friday, March 24, 2023
·      Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
·      Target audience: Developmental Disability-Based Waiver Participants and Stakeholder Advocacy Groups
Feedback can also be provided during public comment periods for any waiver amendments or Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) rule updates that may occur. Additional information will be posted on the ODM Resuming Routine Medicaid Eligibility Operations webpage as it becomes available.
Please note that flexibilities will not expire until six months after the PHE ends. President Biden announced that the PHE will end on May 11, 2023, so HCBS Waiver Appendix K Flexibilities will not expire until November 2023.
