Medicaid Buy-In Program for Children/Adults
The tentative release of the Medicaid Buy-In Program for Children, on July 1, 2012 is very exciting news, and is sure to benefit a large number of families in Colorado. Knowing that this program could potentially change many lives, and greatly help with family dynamics, Personal Assistance Services of Colorado (PASCO) would love the opportunity to welcome new Medicaid recipients as both consumers and possible employees. Having had top administrators at PASCO personally been on “Waiting-Lists” for Medicaid waivers and programs, we “get” from experience, the immediate relief this Buy-In will provide. It is our pledge to families of Colorado participating in the Buy-In program, that PASCO will make the transition an easy and quick one.
