Health Homes SPA Feedback

BMS has been soliciting input on various aspects of the State Plan Ammendment through several mechanisms. Work groups on specific topics were set up at the time of project launch and each met several times during the early planning stages. More recently, webcasts have been conducted for any interested stakeholders and each has provided an opportunity to ask questions and provide comments on the progress of the SPA to date.
We are encouraging anyone who is interested to provide feedback by clicking here. The most current copy of the SPA draft can be accessed by clicking here.
