Today: Brokerage Association Director, State DD Director and Provider Organization Director Talk I/DD System Changes on OPB’s Think Out Loud

Tune in today at noon on Oregon Public Broadcasting- OPB‘s Think Out Loud. Listen in as brokerage association Executive Director Kathryn Weit, ODDS Director Lilia Teninty and provider organization director Shanya Luther discuss changes to Oregon’s intellectual and developmental disability services.

From OPB: Oregon’s system for delivering home and community-based services to seniors and people with disabilities is in the process of being completely overhauled. The state has said that the new system will increase the amount of funding provided by Medicaid for disability-related services and give individuals more choices in how and where services are provided. Parts of the system are already in place, and parts are still in the process of being rolled out.

This overhaul is a component of the Affordable Care Act, and Oregon is one of the first states in the country to implement it.
