Guess what? The 1115 Waiver is a reality! There may be a few people holding out thinking this is another one of those things that will go away given enough time. However, this waiver fits right into everything about reform that has been talked about and is a very big ball that is rolling very fast. At our National Conference coming up February 7-9, we will be having time for these types of discussions. With 18 agencies from New York with over 100 attendees, we will collectively share what each of us know and wants of the system of the future. Here is a link to the conference if you have not registered yet.
You must hand it to Commissioner Burke for using every means possible to inform us all about the waiver and the progress toward implementation. Here is a link to the latest video presentation.
