Message from Richard Edley, RCPA President & CEO:

On January 19, 2017, RCPA sent out an announcement urging individuals to contact the governor’s office regarding the concerns over the proposed ODP Medicaid waiver amendments, specifically related to Chapter 2390 licensed vocational facilities and Chapter 2380 licensed adult training facilities. I am pleased to say that this is NOT a necessary step at this time.

I have spoken directly with Nancy Thaler, Deputy Secretary of the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), and she has notified me that ODP will hold a meeting of all day/vocational providers in early March to review questions, concerns, and the entire process. This is similar to the recent meeting ODP had with all residential providers.

This is in addition to the upcoming three day (01/31 – 02/02) work group of stakeholders being held by ODP to review the proposed regulations and the comments received. I will be representing RCPA and we will have several provider and other member representatives also in attendance.

In light of these meetings and the proposed process, it would be more appropriate to enter in that discussion and suspend direct calls to the governor’s office. While we have concerns, ODP has assured us that there will be a forum and mechanism to voice these concerns and to have a more constructive discussion.

If you have any questions, please contact me. RCPA will certainly provide an update after the conclusion of these meetings.
