Sen. Becky Massey and Rep. Rebecca Alexander have recently introduced SB1793 and HB2081, respectively.
Existing limitations prevent aids employed by Personal Support Services Agencies from administering essential medication to clients. These bills seek to align the medication administration authority of Direct Services Providers (DSPs) serving the CHOICES and OPTIONS programs with those already authorized in other care settings.
Your support can make a significant impact in advocating for these bills and empowering caregivers to provide comprehensive support to those in need.
