Consumer Directed Care

This violates provider choice rights. This infringes on our rights of provider choice.  It was difficult before Covid to find attendants willing to work for the hourly pay of  a child with disabilities.  Now you want to add another layer of bureaucracy and further reduce the wages that attendants will receive. When does this end? Parents of children with disabilities have enough on their plates without the government adding more burden.  We have enough hoops to jump through to get services and care for our children. Instead of making up things as you go along how about including parents and asking us what we need and how you could streamline processes that help families instead of adding more stress to our lives. This would eviscerate ‘consumer choice’.
