Over the past few years, Health & Human Services (HHS) has doubled in complaints over "cuts" in the Medicaid program to our Special Needs Children. It has been in the media & as of late in local tv shows. It has been said that "for profit" companies have been called in to assist, in an already working system. It has also been said that by saving money in the tax payer supported federal program, people inside may have & are receiving bonus'. The result is a cut in health & care to our Special Needs Children, resulting in severe & irreversible declines in health to critical levels. Nursing hours being cut, medicines cut, supplies & or delayed, etc. Leaving the parents to become law students, politicians, activists & much more, fighting for what has not been a problem before that past couple years, while trying to earn a living. Who has this kind of time in today's economy & world? Our Children & their health is not for sale or a money making opportunity. Lives are being put at risk. We need to let our leaders in Public Service know, this has become an out of control issue & problem. Many are aware of the story's & public hearings, yet nothing changes & continues to worsen. Please stand with us & sign this petition, so we can draw more attention to this problem & shed light on real solutions & change by the people we vote in power.  

We were with Amerigroup, who gave back the hours they were trying to cut, when we fought it with Epic (Nursing Agency) after we already switched to Children's Health, because inconsistencies they were having. This was the second time this year, we had to deal with this! On our State Fair Hearing Call recently, our Disabilities Rights Attorney did not catch that our current Nursing Agency submitted other patients records for the State Fair Hearing. An upfront violation on health records. We recorded the "hearing" & requested an audio copy, as our recording cut off 2 hours 18 min into a 3 hour 43 min. call. We were constantly interrupted, but the Dr had the "floor" 90% of the time with his denials, rebuttals, "reasons" & questions, while any interruptions were halted. It was a sham from the get go. I am currently editing clips from the call & await a copy from HHS & Children's Health, I requested 10/9/18. In either case... you will see how this system is manipulated & controlled through bureaucracy . 

Please share this on your social media pages, now.
