Consultation on IHCIA Long-Term Care Provisions
Posted on January 11, 2012
I recently sent a letter [Link to IHS PDF - 31KB] to all Tribes to request consultation on implementation of the long-term care provisions in the recent permanent reauthorization of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act included as a part of the Affordable Care Act. I am requesting comments on the recommendations from the November 2010 Conference entitled "Long-Term Care in Indian Country: New Opportunities and New Ideas" and priorities for implementation efforts. While we have not received specific funding for long-term care, I would like to identify actions we can take now while we work through the budget formulation process on this topic. Comments are due by March 16, 2012.
