NEWS: Statewide campaign seeks to save critical programs for more than 3,300 Arkansas children with special needs

LITTLE ROCK, AR. – The “Save My Services” statewide campaign launched today with the goal to increase public awareness of the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS)’s proposal to restrict Medicaid eligibility for children in developmental preschools. Over the next 18 months, this policy change will lead to over 3,300 children with special needs losing access to these critical services, and even more losing access in future years.

The “Save My Services” campaign urges the public to contact their local state legislators and the Arkansas Governor’s Office and ask them to "remove the one therapy requirement" so that children with special needs continue to have access to these critical services.
