Do Not Change To Agency-Directed

As a mother of a medically complex 7-year old, I am adamantly opposed to the proposed change that would force Consumer-Directed families currently receiving Appendix K to switch to Agency-Directed. I can see zero advantages to creating even more barriers to receiving these benefits and many, many disadvantages, including:

-increased paperwork for families like mine

-decreased pay for families like mine

-more stress, chaos, and change for families like mine

-less freedom for families like mine 

I urge to consider leaving it as Consumer-Directed.
