    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, May 27, 2010, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct its second public hearing on the state’s long-term care system. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2040 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    In this study, the Commission will review the spectrum of long-term care and California’s capacity to provide care to seniors and people with disabilities in the most integrated setting possible. At this hearing, the Commission will learn about home and community-based services, including the the legal need to provide services that allow people to live in the community rather than an institution, the cost-effectiveness and availability of home and community-based services and how California might expand its repertoire of home and community-based services.

    The Commission will hear from the directing attorney of the National Senior Citizens Law Center on the legal landscape of the Olmstead v. L.C. decision and related litigation. A panel of researchers from the Center for Personal Assistance Services at U.C. San Francisco will share their research on the cost-effectiveness of home and community-based programs from a national perspective and will discuss ramifications for California. The director of the California Department of Health Care Services will discuss the department’s role in overseeing long-term care waiver programs and the state’s 1115 waiver renewal process. Finally, the chair of the state’s Olmstead Advisory Committee will lay out a vision for providing a holistic system of care in the long-term.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room in the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
