This clip from the STAR Kids Advisory Committee meeting on 06.14.17 validates what advocates and families have said for months: the data that Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is providing to the legislature regarding the STAR Kids Program and the therapy cuts is GROSSLY INACCURATE, and DOES *NOT* reflect what families are experiencing every single day.
Despite the fact that this provider personally recorded 17 formal complaint calls made to the Office of the Ombudsmen between 04/12/17-05/24/17, HHSC's legislative report shows ZERO (0) complaints made during that time period.
As Ms. Gilani testified, "As a provider, I am required to submit accurate, evidence-based results to HHSC and the MCOs [private insurance companies contracted to the state]. Why aren't HHSC and the MCOs held to the same standards?" #STARKidsfailskids #STARKidstook #reversethecuts #protectTXfragilekids #TXKidsMatter #txlege
