Today, the Better Care Better Jobs Act was introduced in Congress. This bill proposes a $400 billion investment in Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) to expand access to these vital services and create more and better direct care jobs.
The Better Care Better Jobs Act will be a game changer in supporting people with disabilities, their family caregivers, and the direct care workforce.
When this bill becomes law, it will…
Provide huge funding enhancements to states that focus on improving and expanding their Medicaid HCBS delivery system.
Provide funding to expand access to home and community-based services for people who are currently on waiting lists for these services.
Create more and better direct care jobs for the paid workforce that provides these services.
