Is Your Support Plan Current And Correct?

All cost plans are being reviewed between now and November 15, 2011. If your need for services are not well documented, they could be eliminated or reduced. It’s very important that all documentation be sent up at the time of review. If your services are reduced or eliminated, you will have a chance for due process, but the judge will only be looking at what was actually submitted. You will not be allowed to give the judge more documentation during your hearing. Contact your support coordinator to learn more.
