Michelle Cofano from the Department of Elder Affairs replied to my earlier email with:
Now that the Level of Care determination is completed, the Department of Children and Families will continue the process of financial approval.
Can you tell me to whom at DCF you hand-delivered the “Level of Care” documentation? Do you have contact information for that person?
I am sure you can understand that I am wary of simply placing my faith in the efficiency of the government of the State of Florida. I need to know exactly what the next step is in this process.
What I mean is that “the Department of Children and Families” is never going to do anything. Somewhere there is a human being who needs to do something. I need to know who that is so I can ask him or her what is going to happen next.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide,
I delivered the Level of Care to the office of The Department of Children and Families. The Level of Care is then forwarded to a case worker who is assigned to your mother’s case. I do not have the name of the case worker or the knowledge to answer your questions as I do not work for DCF. Please contact DCF at: 1 866-762-2237 for further information. I am sorry I cannot help more but I do not want to give you inaccurate information.
