I am writing this letter in support of Senate Bill 32, the Rate Review. A similar rate review process already is in effect for institutional care facilities. Throughout the years I have been working in the field of developmental disabilities, I have seen the negative effects frozen rates have on our families and their loved ones. Passing this piece of legislation will ensure a fair and equitable rate process for home and community based services, ultimately improving the quality of care for people with disabilities.
Alaska has seen some great accomplishments over the years, improving the lives of people with disabilities. Let Senate Bill 32 be one more among them.
