Medicaid HCBS program funding extensions clear the House

More good news from the House of Representatives, which passed legislation provide funding to expiring Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) programs. The Money Follows the Person program, as well as spousal impoverishment protection program, would receive enough funding to run to October 2023. The bill providing the funding passed by a 371-46 margin. We are proud that our Disability and Aging Collaborative played a key role in the bill’s passage. The Senate is expected to act on this legislation in September.
