ACLU Sues Indiana Family And Social Services Administration Over Benefits

Indiana FSSA
Indiana FSSA

A lawsuit has been filed against Indiana's social services agency claiming that it wrongly barred a developmentally disabled woman with Cerebral Palsy from Medicaid waiver programs and left her without enough income to survive.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana filed the lawsuit and is seeking class action status which could affect thousands around the state.

The ACLU says the Family and Social Services Administration, which helps disabled people live independently, have significantly reduced the woman’s benefits and forced her to be institutionalized.

The FSSA has no comment.
