State Senator Patty Pansing BrooksYes, I agree, $60 is way too little! My original bill was for an increase to $75 for the Personal Needs Allowance under Medicaid which is still too low, but if you look at the Legislative History, you will see we were fortunate to get the increase to $60. Unfortunately, in our State, any change to Medicaid, no matter how small, is a victory. Come!Stay informed! Help us fight for those in need!

Shawn ManionMost of the money goes to retirement homes(assisted living or nursing), medical facilities, and pharmacies. You don't see any of these places struggling to survive a month.

Shawn ManionI agree with Frances Scott! While what you did was ok, and a step in right direction, there is no way a human can buy everything they need for personal use on $60 a month. Most of them even have to pay for medicine out of that which medicaid won't pay for or cover.
