South Carolina's biggest accomplishment this year was the passage of Universal Newborn Hearing, SCreening legislation that assures that all babies have a hearing, SCreen right after birth. Other accomplishments by parents and advocacy organizations working together: raising the poverty level to 165% of poverty for, SCHIP; increasing pediatric subspecialty fees; and making sure that TEFRA is secure. In some areas, families have difficulty getting to providers and services, because transportation is still a barrier or because some providers accept few Medicaid patients. Families indicate that communication between various systems, including education, and turf issues between the systems create barriers to services. Managed care requires pre-authorization for services, but their timelines don't always meet the needs of the child. Family Voices Coordinators have met with their state legislators and with state ICC Council members many times this yea, and have sent Family Voices information to over 10,000 families in the state.
