“Rosie D” Gets a Blog

Rosie D fans, you know who you are, should know there’s a blog now devoted to discussion of the federal lawsuit against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on mental health treatment for MassHealth kids: Rosie D and Me. Blog is written by Dr. David Keller, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics at theUMass Medical School, and Medical Director of Family Advocates of Central Massachusetts, a HRSA-funded medical-legal partnership for children in Worcester County.

Compelling topic and great blog. Welcome to the blogging world, Dr. Keller.

    MassHealth has issued a Request for Information on the Rosie D. case. It was posted on Friday afternoon, and you can get it here or by going to COM-PASS and searching all solicitation for “behavioral health”. It’s called Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative RFI and it is quite long, but I think asks some good questions. As we discussed, last month, I think that it is important for us to formulate a response that speaks for the needs of children in Worcester County. (and for that matter, the rest of Massachusetts.) Responses are due by April 1. Links available on my blog: http://olddockeller.blogspot.com/2008/03/rosie-d-and-you-masshealth-wants-your.html

    Thanks. You are, of course, a model for this process. It just seemed that someone actually involved in the process should weigh in as this process goes forward. We’ll see how it goes; I am not as certain of the outcome as some of the other stuff I am finding on the web (in either direction).
