Medicare Support for children with severe disabilities
While this change from the proposed stage to the final stage may seem minor or inconsequential in its impact, I would argue that omitting the proposed comments from last year is, and has been, a substantial impact to those on the waiver - especially targeting those receiving PDN 16 hours of nursing coverage a day. Ironically, these are the same children who have been designated as the most severely impacted by their disabilities according to this same system. I urge you to reconsider the needed changes needed for these special children.
