HB-5677: An Act Concerning the Availability of Violence Prevention Services Under Medicaid

Trained Violence Prevention Professionals help connect those affected by violent crimes to the services they need. VPPs can Reduce the re-injury rate, and cut Medicaid costs drastically down by redirecting clients to primary care physicians, providing case management and referrals for employment and training, housing, mental health services, and meeting other basic needs.  Supporting them will help enhance the value of our community. HB-5677 uses Medicaid funds to reimburse Violence Prevention Professionals for their services treating victims of violence in the community.
