Who:
Developmental Disabilities Compact Workgroup
What:

The Developmental Disabilities Compact Workgroup will meet to discuss draft proposals created by workgroup members for benefits insurers might offer to persons with developmental disabilities.

Chairperson and Deputy Insurance Commissioner Mary Beth Senkewicz canceled the Nov. 20 meeting, because no draft coverage proposals were submitted by workgroup members.

At the Oct. 14 workgroup meeting, Deputy Commissioner Senkewicz asked members to draft the proposals that were to have served as the foundation for a comprehensive discussion of possible benefit offerings at the Nov. 20 meeting.

When:
Wednesday, December 17, 2008 9:00 AM
Where:

The Capitol             
Cabinet Meeting Room
Tallahassee, FL

(NOTE: Location is subject to change due to legislative committee meetings)

The Developmental Disabilities Compact was established by Senate Bill 2654 and became law in May. Called the "Window of Opportunity Act," Section 624.916, F.S. charged the Office of Insurance Regulation (Office) with developing and executing a compact relating to insurance coverage and access to services for persons with developmental disabilities.

Deputy Commissioner Senkewicz is the chairperson of this effort on behalf of Commissioner Kevin McCarty.
