Saving Tax Dollars

December 8, 2008 at 6:47 am Leave a comment

Programs like United Cerebral Palsy’s Durable Medical and Adaptive Equipment Exchange save taxpayer dollars every day. Many of the people who use the program are on TennCare and other government programs. Every time people select a “gently used” item of durable medical equipment through the Equipment Exchange instead of applying for it through TennCare, they save taxpayer dollars.

Through services like the Wheelchair Ramp program and the Disability Housing Assistance Program, simple home modifications make it possible for people with disabilities to remain in their own homes instead of having to move into high cost nursing homes and other institutions.
