An Act To Promote Greater Flexibility in the Provision of Long-term Care Services
Sec. 1. 22 MRSA 2147, sub- 10, as amended by PL 1987, c. 486, 2, is further amended to read:
The plan of care must meet standards for staff qualifications and supervision consistent with the standards required of licensed home health care providers;
Current law precludes facilities licensed pursuant to the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 22, chapter 405 from providing certain services under one license to residents living in a facility under a lower level license on the same campus. The purpose of this bill is to allow facilities licensed under Title 22, chapter 405 to provide a continuum of care and services to clients residing in those facilities without requiring the clients to leave the facility, without requiring the creation of a licensed home health agency and without having to seek approval of area licensed home health agencies.
