The Governor’s Amendments Are Up!

June 15, 2022

And there is nothing that directly impacts DD or BH services!  So, the good news is that what we have in the enrolled budget will stay; the bad news is that there will not be adjustments to bring the TC or Support Coordinator (DD-ROS) up to previous levels.

I must say that, on the whole, the budget is a phenomenal success; and now the challenge will be to keep up the momentum for the next biennium.  But for the moment, be grateful that there is some recognition that in order to have a viable system of care, it must be adequately reimbursed.

In addition, we were successful in getting the bill passed to protect the right for an individual to have a DNR order and were reasonably successful in protecting some stability.
