Episode #24, January 19, 2022: Speak Up Arkansas: Medicaid Waiver Waiting List
Speak Up Arkansas: Medicaid Waiver Waiting List
On this episode, we discuss the Medicaid waiver waiting list: What it is, how we got here, where we’re going, and how we can best address the needs of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities in a way that will allow them the opportunity to live independently in their communities.
Guests include Christian Adcock, DRA Voting Rights and Public Policy Specialist; Jane Browning, DRA board member and parent of an adult child on the waiting list; and Syard Evans, CEO of the Arkansas Support Network and President of the Arkansas Waiver Association.
