Allor discussed how the cost of providing these services to victims of sexual assaults has increased, causing many health care providers to become financially constrained due to the costs.To ensure that these services are continued, Allor believes that the state must provide additional funding to health care providers, partners, or subcontractors.According to Allor, costs shouldn’t keep victims from getting the care that they need.The bill remains under consideration by the Families, Children, and Seniors Committee. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious More Speed Limit Changes to Take PlaceNext Upcoming: 4th Annual Indoor Auto Showlast_img read more
