About the Event
In Georgia, we have over 7,000 people with developmental disabilities waiting to receive a Medicaid waiver, some waiting more than a decade to receive. Although Georgia is not alone in having a waiver waitlist, limited spending on Medicaid waivers in Georgia has resulted in a longer waitlist than most states. Especially troubling is the result we see when waiver services are underfunded, which is the increased numbers of young people with disabilities who end up stuck in nursing homes. Join us is educating our state representatives and senators on this important topic.
