Montana Cuts Contracts With Developmental Disability Caregivers

Montana

“The state health department is cutting ties at the end of March with private contractors who help people with developmental disabilities.

That’s a result of cuts to Medicaid due to the state’s budget cuts, enacted by Governor Steve Bullock because of the state bringing in lower than expected revenue.

The cuts mean that in the coming months, 2,700 people with developmental disabilities who get help from case managers will move from private organizations overseeing their care to the state health department.

The department says it was forced to make this change because of budget cuts in the 2017 legislative session and the recent special legislative session.”
