On Wednesday, October 30th, FDRHPO/NCI Director Erika Flint and Director of Provider Strategy Joanna Loomis traveled to Syracuse to participate in the Public Comment Forum, representing our PPS. This forum was held to offer an opportunity for Central New York PPSs, their partners and beneficiaries, to advocate for the continuation of the Medicaid Section 1115 Waiver, better known as DSRIP, for another four years (through March 31, 2024).
The Department of Health is accepting written comments through November 4, 2019 and is expected to submit the proposal to CMS by November 29, 2019. CMS has 120 days to comment and/or make a final decision on the proposal and the future of DSRIP.
Here are Mrs. Flint’s full comments.
