The New York State Department of Health (DOH) has announced three upcoming MRT Waiver webinars which will focus on specific reinvestment strategies. Each webinar will include a presentation by DOH staff, as well as a chance for the public to provide feedback and/or ask questions.
This is another important opportunity for New York’s FQHCs to build on the momentum created during the recent MRT Waiver hearings and advocate strongly for substantial financial investment in community-based, patient-centered primary care through this process. The State needs to hear from you!
