ODP Holds Regional Residential Briefings
ODP Deputy Secretary Nancy Thaler is holding a series of regional meetings with providers, including CEOs, CFOs and residential directors to help inform providers about key issues relating to the federal government’s heightened scrutiny of group homes funded under Medicaid and ODP’s review of incidents and trends in the state’s residential system. 

The federal governments’ increased focus is an outgrowth of a cooperative agreement between CMS, the HHS Office of Inspector General and the Administration for Community Living.  

ODP is working with its Regional Offices to contact all providers to ensure attendance at one of the following meetings.  

Providers who have not received an invitation should contact their Regional ODP office to register for a meeting.
 
The first provider meeting was held on Friday, July 27, 2018 in the greater Pittsburgh area.
