you, your calls and emails made the difference and Senate Bill 287 was unanimously
approved by the Ohio House of Representatives last Thursday.
ACTION IS STILL NEEDED
which unbundles wheel chairs from the Medicaid per-diem in skilled nursing
facilities and drastically improving access to mobility devices for residents
with MS, now moves to the Ohio Senate for concurrence. We need the Governor and
the Senate Leadership to know that this legislation matters to you!
call Governor Kasich and the Senate leadership today and tell them SB 287 must
pass NOW. They cannot delay in fixing the mistakes of 3.5 years ago any longer.
People with disabilities are going without necessary mobility devices essential
for their quality of life and cannot wait any longer.
