HHSC Webinar for DSRIP Program Extension Planning and Protocols

HHSC hosted a webinar on September 30, 2015 to highlight the current plans and protocol changes for Waiver 2.0.  The webinar recapped information related to the waiver shared at the statewide learning collaborative summit.  In addition the presentation outlined the proposed Waiver 2.0 protocols, which are separated into two phases; a transition year (DY 6) and the start of the revised protocols for the extension/renewal (DY 7-10).  The transition year (DY 6 - 10/1/2016-9/30/2017) includes parameters for combining projects, setting a minimum annual valuation per provider, and laying the foundation for the performance bonus pools.  The revising protocols for the extension/renewal would start 10/1/2017.   If you would like to access the materials shared on the webinar please click on the links below.
