  • It’s the same way in Kansas. I have been doing foster care now for over five years and the system is just as I have read in the article. The other thing that really bothers me is that the children are on state medical cards which I feel that the medical providers sometimes see this as an opportunity to prescribe medicine no matter the cost to the Kansas tax payers. I have had children who were literally prescribed several thousands of dollars in medicine per month. One child I had was taking 10 mg of Ablify with his other medications and the cost for 30 pills was right at $1000 for a one month supply. If the kids say they can’t sleep, or are having trouble sleeping and might be at risk to wander around after bed time, well then let’s just put them on enough Trazodone to make them stay asleep. I think this is a National problem in the foster care system.
