Providence Service Corporation Comments on Senate Health Care Reform
Date:12/28/2009

g Assisted Support and Services Act (CLASS). CLASS, which is in both the Senate and House bills, mandates that states develop incentives for community and home based programs, requires outcome data, and provides preferential treatment to community health centers. This is well aligned with Providence's own mission statement to provide services in the home and community.
  • Insurance Company Services Requirement. The Senate bill also includes a requirement that insurance companies spend 85% of revenues in services. This along with the requirement that everyone obtain insurance would make a whole new market available to the Company that has not been insured previously.
  • "After years of operating under the Medicaid waiver and continuing to demonstrate the value of home and community based services we are pleased that Congress is recognizing that preventative and home based care may be the best use of Medicaid dollars," said Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO.

    The bill will now go to a committee combined of House and Senate members to reconcile the differences in the two pieces of legislation. There could be substantial changes to the current draft and the benefits outlined above are contingent on the passage of a final bill.
