At home program/Social work

Went to a meeting with the ministry of family and children development for help with children with disability's.   Went over the things Hannah is approved for. $200 of respite(which is pretty much nothing when you consider you have to pay for a trained trach person. Thats like 10-15hours tops), At Home Program(that she was already approved for threw the hospital) and 4 hours a week of housekeeping which will help me out alot!

The At Home Program medical benefits provides the basic, essential medical benefits: 
  • Medical Equipment
  • bio-Medical Equipment
  • Orthotics and Splints
  • Audiology Equipment and Supplies
  • Medical Supplies
  • School-aged Extended Therapies
  • Dental/Orthodontic and optical benefits
  • Medical Transportation
  • Medical Service Plan Coverage
  • Medications and PharmaCare
Everything has to be pre-approved (guide lines at www.mcf.gov.bc.ca/at_home/guidelines ). So I dont know how much the dental orthodontic and optical covers
