11/4 CMS Vaccination Briefing: Presentation Slides & Video

November 5, 2021

Yesterday CMS hosted a Vaccine Mandate briefing for stakeholders across the country.  Below please note links to the video of the Briefing, and below that you’ll find a link to the presentation slides, as well as additional resources, fyi. 

Update:  I am in touch with Brett Friedman (Interim State Medicaid Director) regarding our outstanding questions as to which (if any) OMH and OASAS Programs and Services would fall under the CMS Vaccine Mandate announced yesterday.  It’s clear they are working overtime at DoH to get information out to us.  I’m sure the same can be said for OASAS and OMH.  I’ll let you know what I hear whenever I hear it.

Have a good weekend!
