Long-Term Care Commission

Recently, Congress repealed the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act as part of their effort to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” Because the CLASS Act was intended to create a nation-wide insurance plan, Congress has decided to create a panel called the Long-Term Care Commission to construct and more financially viable alternative now that the act has been deemed too expensive. When completed, this panel will consist of 15 members appointed by the President, the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Minority Leader, the Speaker of the House, and the House Minority Leader. For more information about the Long-Term Care Commission, the full article is available here.
