CMHRS Updates – Emergency Regs and Transformation

October 24, 2018

Emergency Regs on Applicability of UR Requirements (effective yesterday!) will be posted on 12 November for comment; my quick read does not suggest that they require anything that is not already expected!

Transformation (supported by the Farley Center) seems to be moving more slowly than either DBHDS or DMAS expected; though it is difficult to judge as the Stakeholder meetings have been more about small discussion groups and less about presentations of concepts or strategies that we can react to and comment on.  While the discussion is good, it feels a lot like other projects where stakeholders are given the opportunity to share, but not the opportunity to craft solutions or problem solve!  We’ll keep you posted.
