PCSC- Video #6

PCSC Waiver Update

DESCRIPTION: SCDHHS will apply to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for a waiver for children and youth up to age 21 with significant behavioral health needs who would otherwise be in psychiatric hospitals.  This waiver, called the Palmetto Coordinated System of Care waiver, will create several new home and community-based services to help children live in the community, stay in school, and when possible live in their home.

This webinar will help participants understand what a waiver is, what services the waiver will have, how to apply for the waiver, and how the waiver fits into South Carolina’s overall system of care.

SPEAKERS: Gwynne Goodlett, JD, MPA;  Janice Bailiff, LMSW, MS, (of Palmetto Coordinated System of Care);  Kathryn Padgett (of Family Connection of SC)

DATE: June 6, 2017
