Due to the recent release of the final version of the proposed Chapter 6100 regulations, we are changing the format of our upcoming IDD and SCO Committee meetings. We will still meet on Thursday, September 13, 2018; however, the full IDD Committee will now be meeting at 9:00 am.
Acting Deputy Secretary Kristin Ahrens will attend along with Karen Kroh and Julie Mochon from 9:00 am till 11:00 am. Karen Kroh (Regulatory Consultant) will review the comments that RCPA submitted December 16, 2016 and will report on the department’s response to each comment. We will also review the whole package of the new Chapter 6100, and updates to Chapters 6400, 6500, 2380, 2390, and 6200.
This is a great opportunity for our members to speak to ODP representatives about the proposed changes and how they will affect the services you provide. These proposed changes represent over three years’ worth of work on creating updated regulations that strengthen community services and supports to promote person-centered approaches, community integration, personal choice, quality in service delivery, health and safety protections, competitive integrated employment, accountability in the utilization of resources, and innovation in service design.
As a result of this change, you will need to register (or re-register) for the meeting since the times have changed, and there is now an option to order a lunch, even if you have already registered for the meeting. We apologize for any confusion, but believe it was important for members to have this opportunity. Register here to participate.
The schedule for the day will now include a break at 11:00 am. You can order a lunch through the catering service, you can bring your own, or go to a nearby restaurant and return for the remainder of the meeting.
After the short lunch break, we will begin again with the full IDD Committee meeting — guests include Kelly Arnold, ODP Employment Lead, Julie Mochon to discuss the Technical Guidance for Claim and Service Documentation, and Rick Smith to discuss recent audit findings from the QA&I Year Two.
The SCO Subcommittee will meet after the IDD Committee and will conclude the day by 3:30 pm. Contact Carol Ferenz, IDD Division Director, with any questions.
