The Mass Legislature added the monies passed in August by the Congress to the 2011 budget. It will have to be signed by Governor Patrick. Some ....FOR MORE CLICK TITLE...of these funds will be used for Medicaid(MassHealth). These funds will also enable the Commonwealth to return funds(originally included) for frail elders in  Protective Services and for Home Care(and hopefully reduce the wait list). Once the Governor signs this funding change the Commonwealth can decide how to disburse these and determine by ow much to reduce the wait list.
