Governor Ehrlich Launches $90M in Disability Initiatives
Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., today announced his FY 2007 disability budget initiatives of nearly $90 million across State agencies, designed to lower unemployment levels for people with disabilities and support more people in their communities. Included in the new proposal is $10.6 million to fully fund Maryland's Medicaid Buy-In for more than 1,500 Marylanders and more than $17 million in new funding to increase the availability of services to people with disabilities. “This budget will fully implement a Medicaid Buy-In for Maryland workers with disabilities,” said Governor Ehrlich. “It enables people to return to work without losing their health coverage under Medicaid. It is estimated that more than 1,500 people with disabilities in Maryland will seek re-employment under the new Buy-In provisions, sending people with disabilities back to work.”
