Today the Joint Appropriation Subcommittee on HHS is hosting a public hearing to receive input from the community on issues of the budget.

Dave Richard, Executive Director of The Arc of NC, addressed the committee regarding the need to take a hard look at the 1915i option that is provided by changes through Medicaid in the health reform act. He also spoke of creating a state wide system that will address the needs of people with developmental disabilities, as well as make the system more streamlined.
