Long-Term Services and Supports – The Long-Term Care Commission’s First Meeting

The Long-Term Care Commission had its first meeting on Thursday, June 27.  The Chair, Bruce Chernof of the SCAN Foundation, said that the commission would send recommendations to Congress by the end of September on a long-term-care system overhaul.  The 15-member group was created by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, which repealed the CLASS Act program for a voluntary long term services and supports insurance program supported by premium payments.  Chairman Chernof said that the Commission would launch a website soon because the Commission wants its deliberations to be transparent.
