The Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) is providing a webinar on the FIDA demonstration initiative (see yesterday’s NYSHFA Extra).  The demonstration, which initially covers the NYC, Long Island and the Westchester area, is being offered to facility-based residents beginning October 2014.  Although tomorrow’s webinar is at full capacity, call-in information is still available.  Note: the archived webinar will be available next week on the MRT website.

NYSHFA is currently preparing an executive summary of the FIDA demonstration, which will be provided to members in the next few days.  (The webinar PowerPoint will be included , as well.)
