On Thursday afternoon I was one of twelve State Exec’s that met for three hours with top level CMS staff on managed care and and long term care. This was an excellent give and take dialog extremely important matters to individuals with intellectual and other developmental disablities. While this train is moving very fast from state to state, The Arc remains very concerned about the lack of expertise and experience managed care organizations have in our area. I shared the Illinois experience and our concerns about moving community services under the umbrella of managed care.
