As you are aware a group of individuals have been working on a Complex Care Bill this legislative session. As bill now move through the conference committee it’s time to reach out to legislators. Lance Hegland recently shared this information:
If you or someone you know relies on PCA program help 10+ hours each day, please contact the following MN House Reps as soon as possible. This is really important for those living in the areas listed. We need everyone’s help so Representatives clearly understand the staffing challenges plus health and safety risks we’re experiencing.
Your Minnesota House Representative — tell your Representative to pass your critical message along to Representatives Dean, Schomacker, and Albright. Find Your State Representative
Tell them: “Protect the lives — the basic health and safety — of older adults and people with disabilities impacted by our severe PCA staffing shortage. Include the complex PCA service language from Senate File 800, Article 1: Sections 5-9, lines 8.10 to 16.25 in the Health and Human Services (HHS) Omnibus Bill.”
Thank you for your support of older adults, people with disabilities, support workers, and our families throughout Minnesota.
