More Bad Luck for the CLASS Act
clear

The CLASS Act faces more public scrutiny this week after an e-mail from HHS official Bob Yee was publicly circulated last Thursday morning which announced to colleagues he was leaving his position because the CLASS Act office was closing effective last Friday. Yee served as the HHS actuary overseeing the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act program established by PPACA to be an optional, government-backed, long-term care insurance program. The e-mail left the Obama administration fiercely denying reports of the program's demise, and a statement was released saying the CLASS office is cutting back on staff but not shutting down. –NAHU Washington Update
