MH Update – 3/29/19 – Budget Update


Budget bills are just coming out There is a lot to unpack and we will share in next few days. We did not get the COLA this year unfortunately. What was in the budget was a two percent increase for direct care staffs in omh opwdd and oasas (the 100 and 200 series) on January 1 and then another two percent increase for direct care staff in April but that will also include a two percent increase for clinical staff (the so called 300 series) There was a strong concerted effort in a difficult budget year that we will talk about in greater detail over the next few days.
