New York’s SUD IMD Exclusion Waiver: Context & Implications

March 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The NYS Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare is pleased to announce the next webinar in our series of ‘Members Only’ training events focused on various elements of New York’s newly approved 1115 Waiver Amendment:

New York’s SUD IMD Exclusion Waiver: Context & Implications

Date:  March 26, 10:00 -11:00 a.m.  (No registration required. We will send you the Zoom link on Friday, March 22)

Description:  New York is now among 37 states who have gained Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) approval for an Substance Use Disorder (SUD) 1115 waiver demonstration, with five additional states currently seeking approval. The ability and greater flexibilities to provide Medicaid reimbursement for residential and inpatient services is a driving force for state participation. However, CMS also requires states to evaluate the impact of their demonstrations and to achieve certain milestones.

On March 26 from 10-11, join HMA’s Gina Eckart and Kamala Greene-Genece to learn more about why states, and specifically New York, are levering this opportunity, what NYS Council members need to know about their role in a successful SUD Waiver demonstration, and how they can capitalize on the opportunity it presents.
