Our Future: CMS Transition Plan Comments Due by January 23

The DODD CMS Transition Plan Committee public forums in Cuyahoga County, Hamilton County, and Athens County earlier this month completed the series of informational meetings. At each forum, members of the Committee discussed the new regulations, and shared an overview of DODD’s portion of the state’s transition plan, as well as how to provide comments. All comments must be directed to the Office of Health Transformation and submitted by January 23.

If you were not able to attend a meeting in person, you may wish to download the presentation and handout and watch a video of the Columbus Forum. More information about changes to Ohio’s developmental disabilities system – including the new CMS rule, and how to provide comments on the state’s CMS Transition Plan – is available online at DODD.Ohio.Gov/OurFuture.
