Re: Emergency/Proposed Regulation – Care Coordination Organizations Suggested distribution: Agency Administrators and Managers

Purpose: OPWDD is amending existing regulations to allow individuals to be enrolled into Care Coordination Organizations, through certain parties, in situations where there is no other person to make that election for them. The emergency/proposed amendments will not result in increased costs or compliance activities for providers. These regulations are effective through the emergency/proposed rule making process on April 4, 2018. The emergency/proposed regulation text is posted on the OPWDD website at www.opwdd.ny.gov. Look under “Regulations & Guidance.”
