The Governor’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2013 is far from perfect and presents us with many challenges.
The Arc of Illinois supports this proposed budget because of the Governor’s Rebalancing Initiative and the funding of the Ligas Implementation Plan.
Within the Division of Developmental Disabilities we, however, voice our strong objections to cuts to non-Medicaid grants and the third phase of the Integrated Care Pilot which will place all home and community-based services under managed care. Another objection is the continued delay in payments to community providers. Read The Arc’s full testimony.
