Medicaid Home-and-Community-Based Services (HCBS) Access Act

AAHD has submitted comments to the Senate Special Committee on Aging (Senators Casey-PA; Brown-OH; and Hassan-NH) and Representative Dingell (MI) on their previously publicly announced Medicaid HCBS legislation discussion draft. [See March 18 AAHD public policy updates.] AAHD was actively engaged in the drafting workgroups of the Disability and Aging Collaborative (DAC) and Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Task Force on LTSS. We signed the final DAC submitted letter but not the CCD letter because of some details. The April 26 AAHD-Lakeshore Foundation-DAC-and-CCD letters are here: PDF.
