On December 9, 2015 New York State Department of Health and CMS released guidance around FIDA program reforms to enhance the ease and value of the program to FIDA Participants, Plans and Providers. Highlights include:
- Provider participation in an Inter Disciplinary Team (IDT) is adjustable, depending on their availability.
- Primary Care Providers may review and sign off on Person Centered Service Plan (PCSP) without attending IDT meetings.
- Providers are encouraged to take IDT training, but it is not mandatory.
