Next week, Wednesday, March 15 from 1:30 to 2:30 pm, GCDD will be hosting a webinar, with Allison Barkoff of the Center for Public Representation in Washington DC as the main presenter, to help answer many of the questions you have regarding these changes. We here at GCDD have some very serious concerns about how these changes will impact Georgians with disabilities and we want to share them with you.

We know that for many Georgians with disabilities, Medicaid is the lifeline through which services are delivered. Without these services, Georgians with disabilities would not be able to live full and integrated lives in the community.

Remember, in Georgia, Medicaid is also known as the NOW waiver, the Comp waiver, Independent Care Waiver Program (ICWP), Community Care Services Program (CCSP), SOURCE, and the Katie Beckett waiver. That means if you, or your loved one receive these services or are waiting for these services, then any kind of change to Medicaid impacts you.
