Here is a follow up to a story published earlier this week on social adult day care centers controversy

On Monday, February 8, the Assembly Aging Committee meets and will address a bill that would make all social adult day care centers meet regulations established by the State Office for the Aging.  The bill sponsored by Assemblyman Cymbrowitz, chair of the Committee, is intended to regulate the operation of an increasing number of sites set up calling themselves social adult day care but not meeting current standards of those funded by the Office for the Aging.  We reported that Attorney General Schneiderman has gotten settlements from some managed long term care companies that fraudulently referred persons attending social adult day care to Medicaid services they got reimbursed for.

The committee will also vote on a bill that would exempt certain non-recurring income from calculations when determining eligibility for the EPIC program.

The committee is meeting Monday off the floor which means sometime during the Assembly session on Monday.  Call the Assembly committee chair’s office for further information.
