Proposed changes to IIH service language

I agree with each of the previous posts from my colleagues and other mental health professionals.  Further limiting the availabilty and services to the population that qualify for IIH services would be a detriment and disservice. The availability and flexibility of IIH workers provides accessible mental health care to many families who do not have access or funds to pay for transportation. This population already bears challenges and obstacles qualifying for and receiving care in the home and to implement additional obstacles would be unjust.
