Possible cuts to PCA Services in 2013!

Possible cuts to PCA Services in 2013!

A 1.67% cut to the PCA reimbursement rate is scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2013. This cut was built into the budget during the 2011 legislative section. If you would like to support the elimination of this cut please call Governor Dayton’s office and request that this cut be taken out of the 2013 Minnesota budget.

The other people who need to hear from those affected by this cut are the Representatives of the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee and the Senators working on the Senate Health and Human Services Policy and Finance Committee. The Representatives and Senators are listed below with their contact information. Send a message that the scheduled 1.67% cut to PCA services needs to be eradicated. PCAs/DSPs deserve more for the valuable work they do, not less. The wages offered to PCAs/DSPs will affect a consumer’s ability to hire and maintain quality staff. This proposed cut also undermines a consumer’s ability to hire qualified, professional individuals to come into their homes and provide intensely personal delicate cares. It forces them to compromise because they may not be able to afford quality, safe care. We need to respect and care for PCAs/DSPs so they can provide respectful and reliable care to others. Please consider voicing your opinion on this important issue.
