This training series is being brought to you and your organization through the work of the NYSRA-NYSACRA Managed Care Council. 

The State of New York is testing a variety of managed care approaches. New York IDD’s future in managed care and value-based arrangements will be informed by these innovations. Even without specifics, all providers need to gather as much information about value-based payments, managed care tools and how person-centered planning fits in with the new payment arrangements and service delivery.

PURPOSE: The purpose of the three foundational webinars is to give provider agency leaders a framework for learning about New York's future managed care decisions. Each webinar will feature brief case studies, examples from other states, and ample time for questions and comments from the audience.

April 25 & 26, 2017  |  Desmond Hotel & Conference Center, Albany, NY
