Another Program Included in Healthcare - The CLASS Act

People haven't said much about it (until today's posting on the New York Times), but the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act has been included as part of the healthcare reform bill signed this week.  Under the CLASS Act, workers can choose to opt-in to a voluntary payroll deduction, which in turn will result in their receiving a minimum benefit of $50 per day to purchase non-medical long-term care services and supports when needed in retirement.

Thanks to everyone who helped promote the CLASS Act!
