Parents sue Michigan DHS over special needs children
Michigan’s Department of Human Services is being sued for failing to disclose to parents that their adoptive children had special needs and therefore qualified for federal aid.
David Kallman is an attorney representing 8 families in the case. He says because they didn’t know their children had disabilities, so they missed a deadline to claim these benefits for their adopted children, and are now struggling with major medical bills.
He says the families love their kids and want to help them. But the expenses are decimating them.
A spokesman for DHS says they can’t comment on the case, since the suit won’t be filed until tomorrow, but that they investigate all allegations into wrongdoing.
