Senator Lambert, bill sponsor, presented the House Bill 17-1045 and distributed amendment L.004 (Attachment A). The reengrossed bill continues the Home Care Assistance (HCA) Grant Program, which is set to repeal on July 1, 2017, under current law. The bill extends the program for an indefinite period of time until the state has established a consumer-directed support service delivery option for providing homemaker, personal care, and medical support services for individuals who are receiving home- and community-based services on the Supported Living Services waiver program under Medicaid. The executive directors of the Department of Human Services and the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing must notify the Revisor of Statutes once such a consumer-direct option is available, and the HCA Grant Program is repealed on the date identified in the notice or upon receipt of the notice if no other date is specified.
