Alliance Responds to Budget Shortfall Announcement

The Alliance has strongly urged the Patrick Administration to recognize that home health cannot sustain any further reductions and we will continue to advocate as necessary.

In response to the Governor’s recent announcement of a $600 million budget shortfall, the Home Care Alliance has sent a letter to Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary JudyAnn Bigby, Assistant Secretary Jean McGuire, and their staff.

In the letter, which can be viewed here, the Alliance states:

As the administration works to implement its plan to address a $600 million shortfall, we offer our assistance as an organization and an industry, but also strongly urge you to recognize that home health care cannot sustain any further cuts. The cost-effectiveness of home health care has been well-documented during the past year and proves the industry’s value.
