Senate Committee on HELP – Health Workforce RFI – AAHD and Lakeshore Foundation Submission

AAHD and the Lakeshore Foundation have responded to a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) RFI on health workforce issues. Our comments focused on non-traditional workers – community-based, non-medical credentialled, and a lived-experience framework serving persons with disabilities, aged individuals requiring long-term services and supports (LTSS), persons with mental illness and substance use disorder, persons served in the Medicaid home-and-community-based services (HCBS) programs, and persons with co-occurring conditions including those with chronic health conditions. Available here is our March 19 submission, as well as the Senate HELP RFI.
