Access Living comments on a Uniform Assessment Tool

In the Spring of 2013, the State of Illinois issued a Request for Information regarding the acquisition of a Uniform Assessment Tool. The tool will serve as an eligibility assessment tool for Illinois’ Long-Term Supports and Services Program. Every year, Access Living works with scores of people who utilize long-term supports in order to live independently in their own homes. The development of assessment tool will have a significant impact on who is eligible to receive the supports. Attached is the original Request for Information issued by Illinois and the comments submitted by Access Living’s Health Care Policy Department.
