Protection and advocacy is the state agency set up to ensure that disabled people are kept safe and healthy. If your loved one has been placed in a sutuation of higher risk because of these cuts, contact P&A at 1-800-622-4845. They have advocates and a legal team.

Ora, you are right to report the health and safety concerns to Protection and Advocacy. You might want to send a letter to the Indiana Civil Liberties Union too. If it would be helpful, there is a sample letter to use in filing an appeal specific to these reductions.

Please urge others to file appeals. Fa,ilies were hit very hard with this approach and they have no voice. Going to the provider or the case manager is dicey since the quality and assertiveness of the professionals varies widely.

Good luck.
