Senate Committee on HELP – Health Workforce RFI – Medicaid HCBS and LTSS Submissions

We posted on March 21, AAHD and the Lakeshore Foundation submission 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 are four sister organizations submissions on Medicaid home-and-community-based services (HCBS) and Medicaid long-term services and supports (LTSS): (1) CCD Task Force on LTSS co-chairs (AAHD is a member); (2) NASDDDS; (3) NAMD – Medicaid directors; and (4) LTQA.
