In November 2017, the New York State Departments (Department of Health, Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services, Office of Children & Family Services, Office of Mental Health, and Office for People With Developmental Disabilities) released their Final Draft Transition Plan for the Children’s Medicaid System Transformation. The final draft reflects comments they received from stakeholders till August 2017. NYS is requesting CMS to approve the Transition Plan by the end of December, as well as the 1115 Waiver by February 1, 2018. Leading up to the approval, the State Transition Team will be working closely with children and families, providers, managed care plans, stakeholders and advocates to implement the Transition Plan.
