Veronica Sheehan, director of Wardwell Gardens in Saco, says it is unclear which services she can bill to MaineCare in the future. "We haven't been told what is eligible and what isn't eligible. And the governor has put money into the budget, but it will probably cover half of what we're getting now."

Sheehan says this predicament highlights an even bigger problem statewide.
