Another concern I have in here is the Home and Community Based Services. I’m a big fan of what’s called HCBS, which is again, Home and Community Based Services. If you look at this proposal, it creates some problems. It doesn’t give states the opportunity to use it as flexibly as we would like. Right now, we’ve got long waiting lists, a shortage of qualified providers, shortages of affordable, accessible housing for these programs. And the funding here that’s in this proposal would make it even more difficult for some states to use this HCBS proposal in a flexible way. Do you anticipate that all states will be able to take advantage of this enhanced funding to bolster the HCBS programs, given the new requirements that they would put on home-based care?” External link

Another concern I have in here is the Home and Community Based Services. I’m a big fan of what’s called HCBS, which is again, Home and Community Based Services. If you look at this proposal, it creates some problems. It doesn’t give states the opportunity to use it as flexibly as we would like. Right now, we’ve got long waiting lists, a shortage of qualified providers, shortages of affordable, accessible housing for these programs. And the funding here that’s in this proposal would make it even more difficult for some states to use this HCBS proposal in a flexible way. Do you anticipate that all states will be able to take advantage of this enhanced funding to bolster the HCBS programs, given the new requirements that they would put on home-based care?” External link
