CONCEPT DRAFT

SUMMARY

This bill is a concept draft pursuant to Joint Rule 208.

This bill proposes to create well-paying jobs and to reduce the State’s costs for avoidable, preventable, high-cost emergency room, hospital and nursing home care by investing $1,000,000 in a pilot block grant program for nonprofit home health care providers to provide light housekeeping, shopping, cooking, budget and medication management and referral services and assistance with other activities of daily living under the supervision of a primary care physician. Providers would apply via a competitive grant application process.
