Why Funds for Pediatric Physical Therapy in Texas Shouldn’t Be Reduced

Raising children with disabilities and special needs is never easy, for it often takes a toll on a family’s financial situation. This is why many parents turn to Medicaid funds under the Affordable Care Act for help in providing the needed care for their children.These families are now facing a big threat as Texas lawmakers have just recently passed a bill cutting over $350 million in state Medicaid funding for physical, occupational, and speech therapies, to be spread over the next two years, or up to the year 2017. These recent cuts could make it difficult for many families in Texas to afford pediatric physical therapy and other therapies their children need.
