    Managed Care Council
    As the implementation of managed care is underway, the council serves as a mechanism by which members exchange information and share experiences and best practices. Members set forth the managed care policy platform which includes determining the structure, mechanisms and technical assistance that will be necessary to move services and supports for individuals with disabilities into managed care. New York Alliance members are welcome to view live webcasts of these meetings which often times include our consultants and key state officials.
