Disability Pay Calculation Wrong: Court
A new payment system for developmentally disabled Floridians needs to be fixed, the News Service of Florida reports. The so-called ‘iBudgets’ system aimed to give people flexibility in the way state money is spent on services, but the 1st District Court of Appeal ruled that the way the Agency for Persons with Disabilities calculated payments violated state law, according to the News Service.
An appeals court Monday found that the state Agency for Persons with Disabilities did not properly carry out a law that created a new system of funding services for people with developmental disabilities. The case, brought on behalf of four people with disabilities, focused on a system known as "iBudgets."
