ANCOR Public Policy and Block Grant Positions

February 21, 2017

ANCOR has released their 2017 Public Policy Position Statement and their position on the Block Grant and per capita cap proposals.  It all makes for interesting reading but we want to draw your attention specifically to the statement on Block Grants and per capita cap proposals; if you have a desire to email your members of Congress please use the ANCOR position as the basis for your conversation. While flexibility always sounds attractive, it would not remove any of the requirements for documentation, staff qualifications or the development and implementation of a plan of care – it would (as it is intended) reduce the federal share of the cost placing more of the burden on the state and eventually on the providers.
