Great win in Olympia!

March 12, 2020

Full Life Care in Olympia.

We have reason to celebrate! We received some key wins in Olympia this week for this supplemental budget year.

Together with matching federal funds, we won appropriations to fund a 6% Adult Day Health rate increase, a 0.05-cent per hour increase to our admin rate in homecare, homecare parity and a health home rate increase that could be as big as 20% per an actuarial study. Any one of these funding increases would have been good, but to gain this much support from the Washington Legislature is exceptional!

 Your phone calls and emails last month helped us in the House and the Senate. We’re so very grateful to all of you!

And thanks to the lawmakers who made this happen. You spoke and they listened. A special tip of the hat to Rep. Nicole Macri and Sen. Rebecca Saldaña for their efforts to champion on our behalf.

This has been a challenging and emotional time, full of highs and lows. Throughout it all, though, we at Full Life are have never been more encouraged by and proud of the dedication of our staff and of your support. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Scott Slater

Acting Executive Director
