Tuesday, February 18, 2020 from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm
Staybridge Clubhouse* @ Staybridge Suites Lincoln I-80
2701 Fletcher Ave
Lincoln, NE 68504  

*This conference room is not part of the main building.  On the backside of Staybridge, the Clubhouse is in a separate building.

Level of Care Redesign Summary

The Division of Developmental Disabilities and Division of Medicaid and Long-Term Care, along with the Optumas Healthcare consulting team, are working to design the most appropriate and effective institutional level of care (LOC) assessment criteria and tools to achieve our mission of helping people live better lives.

  • A Technical Advisory Group (TAG) will serve both phases. It will include clinical, academia, provider, and policy perspectives.
  • Each phase will have listening sessions for adults and children, which include families, people in services, and advocates.
