Long-Term Services and Supports Open Door Forum

Overview:

The Long-Term Services and Supports Open Door Forum (ODF) addresses the concerns of beneficiaries and stakeholder communities in relation to the Medicaid & Medicare programs. This Forum strives to handle questions on delivery of services to older adults and individuals with disabilities. Many of the discussions are broad in nature and serve to inform all participants about the different levels of integration between agency policy and legislative efforts. Timely announcements and clarifications regarding important rulemaking, agency program initiatives and other related areas are included in the forums.
