Senior Center Hit Hard with Budget Cuts

The Shelbina Senior Citizen’s Center has been hit with cuts due to a funding formula change from the State, which amounts to about $28,000.
   “We are also affected by the Missouri Health Net, or Medicaid cuts,” Debra Sparks explained. She said that they do Medicaid meals to the home delivered people as well as in-home service. “Those reimbursements that we get from Medicaid have been cut three percent,” she added. Sparks said it doesn’t sound like much but it figures to an additional $3,000 added on to the $28,000 already cut.
   Sparks said to compensate for the cuts, they have had to cut hours of some of the staff members at the Center. Some people who were getting two meals a day, have been cut back to one meal a day. “That doesn’t sound like much, but we have a lot of people that can’t get out and they don’t have any money. So this has made a difference for them,” she said.
