Congressional Commission On Long-Term Care
LTC Commission wins praise for recommendations, but some members say the group failed to complete missionSeptember 16, 2013
Long-term care advocates have praised a set of recommendations issued by the Congressional Commission on Long-Term Care, but some commissioners broke ranks, saying the panel did not fulfill its mandate.
The Congressional Commission on Long-Term Care convened for its third hearing last week, focusing on how Medicare, Medicaid and long-term care insurance interact, and potential ways to strengthen these payment mechanisms. Over roughly eight hours, the 15 commission members heard from a total of 15 subject matter experts on four separate panels.
