I have been trying to get legal services on behalf of my son for years. He has been the victim of medicaid fraud, discrimination against him and refusal of care by local hospitals because he is autistic, and denial of an appropriate education. Disability Rights has always refused to help. I believe they choose their cases based on friendship and professional associations and not on the severity of the mistreatment of the handicapped person. I have to go to an administrative hearing alone on my son's behalf. When a mediator called to offer mediation, I told her about the severity of the problems. She recommended her good friend, Jennifer Bills, lead attorney at disability rights and said how much she had helped her with her son. Ms. Bills had a juniot attorney call me, who advised me to take what the provider agency was offering, "because they must be sure they'll prevail at the hearing or they wouldn't be going for one." It is incredible that this attorney did not recognize bullying and posturing on the part of the provider agency in order to save the care dollars my son deserves. A US district court has already ruled against this agency on the very issues in my son's case and still he would not help. He even sent me regulations to back up his suggestion. When I phoned and asked who had written the regulations, he admitted that the provider agency had written them and that Disability Rights had not reviewed them to see if they were consistent with medicaid law.
