The 2023 legislative session in South Carolina has officially come to a close and, thanks to the hard work of our Hearts for Home Care advocates and our coalition partners, home care advocates have much to celebrate this session!
In late June, Governor Henry McMaster signed the 2023-2024 budget, codifying permanent reimbursement rate increases and streamlining levels of service for critical Medicaid home care programs that keep vulnerable South Carolinians safely cared for at home:
While much work remains ahead of us to continue to address the home care workforce crisis, we made considerable strides this session, and it’s critical that we take time to thank the SC General Assembly and the Department of Health & Human Services for taking action on our behalf.
Take just one minute today to send an email to your elected officials thanking them for prioritizing Medicaid home care services this session!
