UPDATE – Governor Sununu’s Stay-at-Home Order

Hi Everyone,

In light of Governor Sununu’s “stay at home” order this afternoon, I wanted to send a quick reminder your way tonight. As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, please remember that The Moore Center is deemed a critical safety net/Essential Service for the citizens of our state. 

For that reason, The Moore Center will remain open and operational throughout the COVID-19 pandemic emergency.  And as you know, it takes so many of us to keep the The Moore Center operational.

Last week we made many decisions about who were essential staff and looked closely at who could work from home, who could mostly work from home and who would need to stay fully engaged in programs. The Governor’s announcement today gives us a chance to take another look at the decisions made last week. We are asking Directors to review these decisions and see if any modifications are needed.

Our clients need us more than ever before and our ability to be accessible and to lead with kindness and compassion will demonstrate more than ever before the vital role The Moore Center plays in our community and state.  We also want and need to be ready and able to work with our community partners in service to our clients and families, and the greater community too.

In order to identify yourself as an essential worker at this time, please be sure that you keep your Moore Center ID Badge with you at all times when you are working for The Moore Center. We believe this will be sufficient, but have additional ideas should more sophisticated ID’s be required as this continues to unfold.

Thank you so much, and know that every day I become more and more impressed with our ability to help each other and work together under pressure. I’ve also enjoyed hearing from so many of you sharing with me how you and your families are getting through these challenging days. If you have any questions about this reminder, please forward them to to your Director or VP.

Please stay safe and well!


Paul S. Boynton
President and Chief Executive Officer

Conflict-Free Case Management

If you have a family member who receives services through the Developmental Service System of Area Agencies you may have you heard about the Corrective Action Plan (CAP) that NH is under, related to the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS).

The three 1915 (c) waivers affected by this CAP are Developmental Services, Acquired Brain Disorder, and Children’s In-Home Services.

The compliance issues addressed in the CAP focus on conflict of interest between case management and direct service delivery; and compliance with Medicaid billing rules, which allow providers to bill directly to the State.

A Brief History of the NH Regional Service System

Matthew Ertas, former Chief of the Bureau of Developmental Services, gives a lecture to Moore Center staff about the history of services for people with disabilities in NH.

Matthew brings a wealth of knowledge on the history of New Hampshire’s Regional Service System and its evolution to today’s model.
