Follow-Up Report on the Review of the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program Administered by the Department of Labor and Employment Security, Report No. 97-32, January 1998
 
Full report in PDF format


The Department of Labor and Employment Security has taken steps to implement some of our recommendations and has worked to:
  • identify and return third party reimbursements to the Program;
  • pursue short-term grants; and
  • seek budget authority to fund a Medicaid waiver.

However, to fully maximize program funding and client outcomes, further action will be needed to implement our recommendations to:

  • work with County Clerks to ensure the receipt of program revenues;
  • adopt a seamless approach for delivering services; and
  • assess services that could be provided and clients that could be served under current funding limitations.
