Action Alert 3.8.19


  • Contact your state senator and ask them to support increasing Medicaid waiver rates by 10% to help attract quality Direct Support Professionals – workers that provide personal and critical care to Hoosiers with intellectual and development disabilities.
  • This would provide for an average wage of $13 an hour for DSPs, which would allow many DSPs to get off of social service supports themselves.
  • Please call or email your senator today and continue to contact them weekly.
