PROVIDER NETWORK NEWS

Issue #23

Message from the Board

iCircle Services was asked to present at the OPWDD Managed Care Forum on July 18, 2013. We will have the opportunity to talk about iCircle’s approach to managed care to Region 2 providers who have not yet joined with a DISCO. We are grateful for this opportunity to showcase iCircle and answer any questions providers may have. Our network is now over 75 providers from around the Rochester, Syracuse and Southern Tier regions, and we look forward to continuing to grow.

It is important that you attend one of the provider meetings being held in the next few weeks (see information below). iCircle leadership will present on the application status, next steps, and discuss some important new developments. If you have not done so already, please RSVP by email info@icirclefl.org or by calling 585-347-1616. We look forward to seeing you then!

Reminder: Sign Up for POM Training

If you weren’t able to attend our first POM Training Session, there are still a few spots available in Session 3, scheduled for August 20th-23rd at CDS Monarch in Webster. Reserve your place today, by sending your registration form to Stacey.Coons-Talbott@CDSMonarch.org.
