Professor Nina Kohn Writes in The Hill: It's Time to Care About Home Care

In an opinion article published in The Hill, Professor Nina Kohn reacts to the potential positive impact on Medicaid-covered home and community-based services (HCBS) outlined in President Biden's American Jobs Plan.

Kohn summarizes, "Biden’s proposed $400 billion investment in home and community-based care is consistent with what we have learned from the COVID-19 pandemic: Long-term care should not require institutionalization. Politicians have an opportunity to show that they learned that lesson by expanding access to home and community-based care and investing in the essential workers who provide it."
