[Elkhorn, Wisc...] The MacIver Institute recently highlighted a federal rule change from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that could mean the end of work programs for people with disabilities all across Wisconsin. Folks from more than 50 organizations in the state could be negatively impacted by the new rule, and the MacIver Institute spoke with Kelly about how it would impact her family. Her sister, Wendy, is deaf, suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder and is cognitively delayed. Wendy also works at VIP Services in Elkhorn.
