Updates: More on Nursing Care Cuts, Website, New Budgets

February 18, 2015

Update #1:

We have determined that 68 children have had nursing cut through the NPCS program in the past six months. We expect this number to grow. The ever-dedicated attorney Bob Farley is taking a look at options regarding potential litigation. If you have had your nursing hours cut, please contact him. Also make sure to file notice of an appeal within 10 (TEN!!!) days of receiving your notice. Feel free to email us with any questions or if you need help with your appeal.

Update #2:

We've tweaked the website a bit to make it mobile-friendly. Hopefully it works.

Update #3:

We learned today to expect about a 20% cut to Medicaid next fiscal year. At this point, we do not know how or if this will affect families who receive in-home nursing. We will keep you posted as details emerge.
