Connecticut: Urge Legislators to Support Medicaid Rate Increase for Home Care
HCAOA Connecticut urges members to contact their lawmakers TODAY to urge them to support an increase in Medicaid funding for home care in the special session this week. Despite strong advocacy efforts by HCAOA Connecticut members, lawmakers approved a state budget last week that includes only a modest 1.2% increase in Medicaid funding for home care. It is critical for agencies to tell lawmakers about the importance of Medicaid funding for home care, how they are struggling to meet rising costs and expenses, including minimum wage, provide essential services to elderly and disabled clients, keep up with demand, and ensure industry wages rise to levels sufficient to recruit and retain direct care workers. Sharing personal stories about the care you provide and testimonials from clients praising your services can be particularly effective.

The HCAOA Connecticut Chapter joined with other advocacy groups to send a letter to Governor Lamont and legislative leaders this week. Join in the effort by sending this pre-written message to your legislators TODAY!

Thank you for your participation and support!
