Action Alert: Texas Medicaid Cuts to Services for Disabled Babies and Toddlers Set to Go Into Effect In Two Weeks
The long threatened cuts to Medicaid reimbursement rates for therapy to disabled babies and toddlers in Texas are set to go into effect on December 15th. These therapies help children with disabilities learn to walk and speak and care for themselves so they can be ready for school. Parents and therapists tried to stop the cuts in court but the Texas Supreme Court did not care about the 60,000 babies who will probably lose services. Please call Governor Abbott and Lt. Governor Patrick and ask them to halt these cuts.
