Town Hall Forum with Dr. Steve Hall

ExceptionalOps Proudly Presents a Town Hall Forum
Featuring Dr. Steve Hall
Director of the Dept. of Developmental Disabilities of GA DHR
Tuesday, April 14th from 7:00-9:00PM
First Christian Church, 294 Jenkins Road, Tyrone, GA

This Forum will provide an overview of the two new federal Medicaid waivers and plans for implementing the changes in 2009:
· NOW: New Options Waiver for persons who live with family members or in their own home
· COMP: Comprehensive Supports Waiver Program for persons who need a full range of out-of-home services or intensive, in-home services who do not otherwise qualify for the NOW program
This seminar is designed to provide and clarify information for participants, families, and representatives about the “new” waivers which are designed to offer persons more control over how their service dollars are spent. The session will include overviews of both waivers and specific roles and responsibilities for participants, representatives, families, and support networks.
