June 2013


Issue Eighteen

Message from the Board

Greetings! As we head into June, we are very happy to report that iCircle continues to move forward on application readiness. The workgroups have been busy submitting draft pieces for review and have continued to build our service network. iCircle has a robust, diverse network of providers who have a balanced list of services throughout a wide catchment area. We continue to concentrate our efforts on reaching the most underserved individuals, while building a network throughout Central New York that offers a choice of two providers for each service to our future members. OPWDD has reported that the final RFA will be released in mid-June and will start the open enrollment process in January 2014. They are anticipating that by April 2014 services will start being delivered in the pilot DISCO’s.   

Transparency remains an important value of ours, so we will continue to keep you updated as we learn more. Please feel free to reach out to us at info@icirclefl.org if you have any questions or would like to be more involved in the planning phases. Enjoy this week’s Provider Spotlights!
