Public Meeting on Medicaid Waiver Services Revisions

Georgia's Medicaid waiver services programs are being revised - and you can give your input into this process.  If your child is currently receiving Medicaid waiver services, OR if you anticipate applying for these services for your child in the future, this public meeting is an opportunity for you to have an impact!  See the important information below!

Critical Public Meetings
 
You Can Have an Impact Upon Georgia's Medicaid Home and Community Based Services
 
In March of 2014, to ensure home- and community-based services (HCBS) are integrated, the federal government approved new rules that outline which Medicaid services can be covered and in what setting they can be provided. States are required to create "transition plans" describing the changes they will make to comply with these new regulations. As stakeholders, this is your opportunity to make a difference in the direction Georgia takes in its services.
 
At this meeting you will:
  • Meet with Medicaid leaders to learn about important changes to HCBS
  • Participate in a focused discussion with other advocates and voice your concerns on current services
  • Review the draft transition plan and provide critical feedback helping to shape the future of services in Georgia
 
Who should attend: Consumers and Family Members who receive any of the following services:
  • Independent Care Waiver Program (ICWP)
  • New Options Waiver (NOW)
  • Comprehensive Supports Waiver Program (COMP)
  • Elderly & Disabled Waivers
  • SOURCE (Services Options Using Resources in a Community Environment)
  • Community Care Services Program (CCSP)
  • Georgia Pediatric Program (GAAP)
