As a result of the New York State Medicaid Redesign Team Proposal 4648, the Family Planning Benefit Program (FPBP) was converted from an 1115 waiver service to a State Plan Service (planned for fall 2012). The changes brought about by this conversion will increase access to timely quality sexual and reproductive health services for thousands of New Yorkers, ultimately reducing rates of unintended pregnancy and other adverse reproductive health outcomes. To support the family planning provider community in implementing these changes, the New York State Center of Excellence for Family Planning and Reproductive Health Services (NYS COE) hosted a four-part webinar series on the implementation of these changes.
Through this presentation, participants reviewed the screening process for determining clients' presumptive eligibility for FPBP; reviewed the process for enrolling clients in FPBP, including information and documentation required for the application; and obtained answers to questions about changes to FPBP.
Because of technical difficulties encountered during the recording of the Webinar, notes have been drafted to accompany slides.
