I've just spent the morning combing through the New York State Health Budget bill (S.56-b) and the appropriate Article VII bills and the previous Early Intervention parental fees and billing changes proposed by Governor Paterson have been omitted by the Legislature!!!
I've also done a basic legislative search and the only mention of Early Intervention was found with regard to the current Rockefeller drug laws - not developmental disability services!! So, it appears NYS is going to treat their drug offenders and their children.
If I am incorrect (which I doubt) or I come across any additional information, I'll be sure to pass it along with an update to this post.
