DCF to CLS: Seek Attorneys ad Litem for Medicaid Denial Cases

DCF, understandably, sees the futility and waste of paying for medical services that Medicaid should be covering. Medical support is an important component of permanency for families. I wouldn’t limit this advocacy to just out-of-home kids: we should extend this service to parents (as part of case plans and reasonable efforts) and to kids still at home. Imagine if a state spent half as much on federal benefits litigation as it does on parenting classes.
