3-31-11 DRC Flyer: Social Security Overpayments
Individual Advocacy - Home Health Care
2012: A Home Health Agency terminated Jenna’s (not her real name) nursing services despite her very significant disabilities, without any planning or alternatives in place. When the agency would not comply with DRC’s request to reinstate services, DRC immediately filed in court and was able to get her services back while the case moved forward. This gave Jenna and her guardian, with the help of DRC, time to find alternative services with a provider that would provide her with better services AND more consideration and respect. The case ultimately settled out of court.
