More Person-Centered Planning Trainings This Fall and Beyond

More dates have been added to the Department of Health’s (DOH) Person-Centered Planning Comprehensive System Transformation Statewide Training Initiative. This training initiative is funded by DOH to support best practices and compliance in Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)-compliant person-centered planning throughout the state.

The initiative consists of an extensive series of Regional Trainings and Learning Institutes held across the state in 2019 and 2020, at no cost to participants. The focus of the trainings and institutes will be to grow person-centered thinking, planning, and practice capacity in HCBS-covered service systems in the state. The Department’s objective is to further support comprehensive system transformation – in the context of HCBS Final Rule compliance in person-centered practice implementation – for the state of New York.

Information on the federal HCBS Final Rule and person-centered planning is available here. DOH’s Person-Centered Service Planning guidelines are available here, along with a recommended Plan of Care template that complies with the guidelines. While these documents reside in the Community First Choice Option (CFCO) section of the DOH site, they apply to all enrollees in Medicaid Managed Care and all individuals receiving services through Local Departments of Social Services (LDSSs).

If you have any questions about the training initiative or the registration process, please email NYDOHPCPTraining@pcgus.com.
