Keep the Momentum Going!
Executive action on SHB 2381 allowing certain adult family homes to increase capacity to 8 beds has been taken! It is now on it’s way to the floor of House of Representatives for a full vote. It will then have to go through the same process over in Senate. Now is the time to let your legislators know that you are in support of this legislation and you would like them to vote Yes!
Please take the time to follow the link below and comment on the bill to encourage your legislators to vote yes!
Here are a couple of sample comments you can cut and paste, or feel free to write your own:
This legislation would increase available resources for our communities and for the adult family homes serving Medicaid residents this would allow a greater economy of scale to manage the rates that often fall below costs.
On Average the savings between nursing homes and adult family homes is $100 per resident per day. This bill would allow more people to choose the adult family home option, saving the State millions of dollars per year.
