Thank you for joining us in late 2022 to discuss anticipated changes to New York State’s Medicaid Program through the proposed 1115 Waiver Amendment. New York State’s Department of Health is seeking to improve health equity within each region of the state by integrating health and social care into the fabric of its Medicaid system via the goals of its recent 1115 Waiver.
This means complex issues like food insecurity, housing instability, toxic stress and others will be focused on, but we have to be ready – and being ready starts with being informed.
Join us for a virtual presentation on next steps in this process and how we can build community consensus to ensure these changes have a positive impact on the people we serve.
Scott Emery of M.S. Hall & Associates will provide an overarching understanding of the objectives and elements of the NYHER 1115 Waiver, with a specific focus on the structure and goals of Health Equity Regional Organizations and Social Determinants of Health Network. Scott will also discuss the known timeline and steps regions and organizations can and should be taking for the sake of the communities they serve.
Scott’s presentation will be followed by Q&A.
On the registration page, you’ll have the option to submit your questions for the Q&A portion of the presentation.
