Emergency Community Meetings to Discuss Respite Reduction

Posted on by marty

DDD/DES Respite Reduction Meeting

The Arizona Autism Coalition will be hosting two emergency meetings to discuss the AHCCCS respite reduction from a maximum of 720 per Individual Service Plan (ISP) year to a maximum of 360 Individual Service Plan (ISP) per year, as well as the elimination of childless adult coverage. There will be two meetings so that people who are unable to attend in the evening might be able to participate during the day. Both meetings will be held at the Disability Empowerment Center located at 5025 E. Washington Street in Phoenix in the first floor conference room.

Meeting Option 1: Wednesday, June 15 from 7:30-8:30 PM after Superintendent of Public Instruction, John Huppenthal’s discussion with Coalition members which will begin promptly at 6:30 PM (all are welcome and encouraged to attend)

Meeting Option 2: Friday, June 17 from 10:00 AM-12:00 PM

You do not have to be an Arizona Autism Coalition member to attend, and we encourage you to share this email with anyone who might be interested in learning more about how these changes to AHCCCS will affect you, your business, and the state of Arizona. This issue is not strictly related to autism —  any person or organization impacted by disability can and should participate.
