How will this affect persons with disabilities?
Each person and their situation is unique – it will be up to the MCO you’ve selected to make this decision. We do anticipate MCOs analyzing the following:
- Preventable health conditions (wellness checkups, body mass index, hypertension, etc.)
- Individual service needs - likely resulting in reduced staff support
- Large, congregate services
Further, we anticipate an emphasis on natural supports with the dual goal of improving community inclusion and quality of life while managing costs.
