NYAPRS Note: The Human Services Coalition has just released a controversial “Call to Action” that underlines the many serious challenges that human services nonprofits face going into the uncertainties of Medicaid managed care including higher rates of insolvency, underfunded government rates, low salaries that cause many employees to depend on safety net programs, inadequate investment in facilities, chronic delays in contract payments, multiple and redundant regulations and audits and unfunded mandates. At the same time, the report emphasizes that human services providers need to greatly expand their own management and risk assessment capacity.
This timely report has generated considerable discussion and debate on what it’ll take for recovery focused behavioral health providers to best navigate through today’s uncertain waters, both in NYS and nationally. Accordingly, NYAPRS is very pleased to feature a panel on “Overcoming Challenges for Behavioral Health Nonprofits: From Survival to Success” that will be headed up by HSC executive director Allison Sesso at our April 21-22 Annual Executive Seminar in Albany. Our Seminar prides itself on ensuring that “everyone is in the room” when we come together to discuss the breaking trends and candid challenges we currently face. Please make sure you’re in that room by registering today!
