OAPA represent scores of Medicaid Agencies with shared values of person-centered community-based services that provide a cohesive, effective, innovative, and respectful support system for the I/DD community.
Member agencies provide supports individually and in groups under many umbrellas: community living/in-home supports, employment services, behavior services, supported living, and residential services. These supports enhance independent daily living and increase community inclusion.
OAPA advocacy creates a collaborative, unified message that informs and guides, policy, procedures, and fiscal decisions at the state level that impact I/DD individuals and their support teams.
Upon its formation in 2013, OAPA's (formerly called OCSPO) advocacy and outreach at the state level has benefited In-Home Medicaid Agencies by:
