Disability Rights Connecticut (DRCT) Team
Dear Disability Rights Connecticut (DRCT) Team,
I hope this message finds you well. I am reaching out to request advocacy support for a matter of utmost importance to individuals with disabilities who rely on federally funded services. Specifically, I have become aware of potential discriminatory referral practices by care management agencies that may be limiting access to service providers of Federally funded waivers, including but not limited to the MFP Money Follows the Person program and the ABI Waiver program. It is possible that financial incentives are driving this behavior, which is unacceptable.
As an organization that is committed to promoting equal access to care for individuals with disabilities, I am reaching out to DRCT to request your support in investigating this matter and guiding appropriate actions. It is crucial that individuals with disabilities are not denied access to necessary resources and services.
The impact of limited access to care for brain injury survivors is significant, with delayed recovery, increased health risks, reduced quality of life, financial burden, and mental health impacts all possible consequences of discriminatory referral practices.
I am deeply concerned about this issue and believe that DRCT is uniquely positioned to take action and ensure that individuals with disabilities have full access to all available resources and services. Your advocacy expertise and commitment to protecting the rights of individuals with disabilities make you an invaluable ally in addressing this matter.
Thank you for your dedication to promoting equality and access to necessary resources and services. I appreciate your ongoing efforts to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities.

By working closely with these organizations, ABI Resources is helping to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the services and resources they need to live full, productive lives.
ABI Resources is promoting disability rights by advocating for policy changes at the local, state, and federal levels. This includes supporting initiatives to increase access to affordable healthcare, expand employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and strengthen anti-discrimination laws. By working with advocacy groups and policymakers, ABI Resources is helping to build a more inclusive society that values the contributions of people with disabilities.
Ultimately, the work of ABI Resources is about promoting equality and respect for people with disabilities. By reaching out to advocacy groups, providing personalized care and support services, and advocating for policy changes, ABI Resources is making a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities across the nation.
