Keep Up the Advocacy for a Strong Safety

Net
in the Fee-for-Service System!

Although some of you are now in the fee-for-service (FFS) system and for many of you, it is either just a few weeks or a few months away, all of us can – and should – keep up with our advocacy efforts to help ensure we strengthen the safety net that is needed to continue providing your vital services to current clients and to meet other individuals’ future needs.
