Congress is currently working on a legislative package to extend various health measures (the “health extenders” bill), which we expect to see released at the end of the year. We are following this package because is well-suited to house a longer-term renewal of Money Follows the Person (MFP) and contains provisions of interest to ANCOR members, such as DSH payments. Last week the ANCOR Government Relations Committee heard from Angela Lello, Senior Director of Public Policy at Autism Speaks, on this legislation during its monthly standing call. To further elaborate on that information, we are sharing this chart by ML Strategies which breaks down various programs funded by the legislation and the funding the bill proposes.
