After a meeting in Southwestern Indiana this past Saturday, a group of families is starting a campaign to send personal stories of the impact of these cuts to state legislators.

In the meeting with our area senators and representatives, it was clear that these folks are very empathetic to the situation at hand. However, it was also very clear that they did not fully understand the complexity of the changes or the scope of the impact.

Please join the effort to educate our elected officials about the issues surrounding the Medicaid Wavier. If at all possible, please take time to write to your area legislators about the impact of the Medicaid Waiver and the cuts being made, as it relates to your family (see this thread for contact info http://www.waiverwatch.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=32). Please make it as personal and informative as you can. In addition, please try to have your letters to the statehouse before the morning of January 4, 2006, as that is when the 2006 legislative session begins.

These individuals seem to have a heart for people with disabilities and are our only lifeline to the governorís office and the administrators at FSSA.
Thanks so much for your help! Keep up the good fight.
Happiest holiday wishes,
macnchez
