Eligibility/Adult Services

The Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has initiated significant changes to the way individuals currently receiving Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC) services & Plan of Care Support Services (PCSS) may access services. These changes went into effect on July 1, 2018. Transition Coordinators, guidance personnel, and other school personnel working with students with disabilities and their families, may want to review a summary of these changes, informative webinars, & FAQs at: https://opwdd.ny.gov/opwdd_services_supports/care_coordination_organizations/faq
