Correction to Response: #217805

Please forgive the error in our original comments from Little Red Door Cancer Agency. We are passionate about ensuring that low income Hoosiers have access to transportation for medical appointments and our final sentence should have read: We strongly DISCOURAGE the extension of the NEMT waiver to help ensure our most vulnerable citizens have access to the treatment and medical care they need.
