Sheryl met with Burgess staffer Michael Yancey who handles ADA issues and patched Laura in by phone who graduated and lived in Burgess's District. When Laura gave her personal story Michael said his sister also has the same type of muscular dystrophy Laura does. Sheryl and Laura shared their personal stories of institutional bias and risk of nursing home placement, and give info on DIA including cost savings in NCD report.
Michael brought up fraud in HCBS program in TX where people not needing care get services. Laura wants to fact check where they're getting their info on that.
Michael mentioned the Congressman does not sign on to legislation regarding taxes, tweaks Medicaid and Medicare, and other issues related to his position on E&C Committee and Chairman of Subcommittee on Health, but staff will review. Sheryl got contact for healthcare staffer and Laura will follow up.
