MASS BUDGET CONFERENCE COMM - JUNE 24, 2010

The Conference Committee proposed a budget which produces a longer wait list for home care and reduces funding for protective services. Please contact your State Rep/.... For More Click Title....  Senator to return those funds to the budget.
 
Those particular decisions were made in response to the lack of funding for FMAP(Medicaid) by the Congress. Contact Senator Scott Brown(Boston- 617-565-3170;DC -202-224-4543; vanessa_sinders@scottbrown.senate.gov ) to urge him to extend increased Medicaid funding or the wait list will grow.
 
The budget generally includes the higher of the House or Senate versions for elder related services(for protective services, home care, suicide prevention, senior centers) but this assumes FMAP funding. It also shows the percentage reduction for each item without FMAP funding by the Congress(which at this point has not been passed).
