The COVID-19 pandemic created many challenges for people with disabilities and older adults, as well as for the disability and aging networks. But leaders rose to the challenge — as innovators and inventors, partners and problem-solvers — and states and ID/DD providers successfully implemented 1915(c) waiver Appendix K strategies and other creative approaches to ensure continuity in HCBS and overall health and safety. Through the pandemic, we discovered opportunities to rethink and redesign home and community-based services. 

ACL and the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) are partnering to present a series of webinars to explore these opportunities.

Please join us on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 from 2-3:30 p.m. (EDT) for the second webinar, which will focus on day services. Specifically, we will:

  • Review Appendix K approaches implemented in state ID/DD waivers;
  • Hear from providers and consumers about providers’ strategies to deliver day services while complying with shelter-in-place and social distancing requirements; and
  • Discuss potential changes to ID/DD payment structures that could give providers greater flexibility while promoting independence and inclusion of people with ID/DD.
