We will pass along any information to you as soon as we get it.

 

 

·        The October DY2 Reporting Webinar from October 17th has been posted on the waiver website: http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/1115-webinar-archive.shtml. We have heard from some people that they have had trouble accessing other webinars posted on the website, and we have found that using a browser other than Internet Explorer can help.  There is also an optional link below the posted webinar to download a Windows Media Video file of the webinar instead.
