Tomorrow's NYAPRS MRLC Webinar Features Medicaid Director Helgerson

NYAPRS Note: With the roll out of phases 2 and 3 of New York's HealthHome initiative, the NYAPRS member Learning Collaborative is turning our focus to the next steps in NY Medicaid Redesign, starting with the creation of integrated Special Needs Plans largely in New York City and health plan-BHO collaborations largely upstate.

Almost two years ago, our NYAPRS Health Home Learning Collaborative was created to provide our members with a comprehensive monthly information exchange aimed at helping them to prepare for and capably operate in the Health Home environment.

Given the many changes to come, we are expanding our focus of service to you with a broader Medicaid Redesign Learning Collaborative (MRLC) that will begin with a December 14th kick off webinar featuring NYS Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson and his team (see below).

In the coming years, our MRLC will build on our strong commitment to provide you with timely information from key leaders, consultants and our own community, helping to connect and support us all through the extraordinary changes to come.

Please make sure and join us on December 14th!
