Coalition to Lower MA-TEFRA Fees
Nov. 2, 2016
AuSM is a member organization of the Coalition to Lower MA-TEFRA parental fees, and we invite you to join us in support of this initiative.
Many families of children with disabilities struggle to pay the parental fees associated with MA-TEFRA. These fees can cause undue financial hardship for families already facing the high cost of raising children with disabilities. In some cases, the fees are a barrier to insurance coverage for necessary treatments and supports. This legislative session, several individuals and organizations are joining together to form the Coalition to Lower Minnesota MA-TEFRA Parental Fees. The Coalition seeks to meaningfully lower MA-TEFRA parental fees, with the longer term goal of eliminating these fees altogether. While the 2017 legislative session may seem like a long way away, the time to get organized and act is NOW.
