The Senate and House of Representatives budgets do not include the AFH Council’s requested proviso to update the county designation for adult family home Medicaid payments. Current county designations are based on 20 year old data. This proviso request would increase Medicaid payments by updating the designation of the Pierce, Snohomish, Asotin, Chelan, Columbia, Douglas, Pend Oreille, Skagit, and Walla Walla counties.
We are asking you to please contact your state legislators to ask them to include AFH Council’s requested proviso.
Please call or email your state legislators with the following request:
“In your final budget, please support and include the Adult Family Home Council’s request for the budget proviso to update the county designation for adult family home Medicaid payments.”
Feel free to include anything about your AFH business and your challenges to operate. Also, be sure to include your name, name of your AFH, address, phone and email
