Modern Healthcare

The Congressional Budget Office will assume the long-term care insurance program included in last year’s healthcare reform law is defunct when calculating baseline budget projections that will be issued in January, CBO Director Douglas Elmdendorf said in a blog post. Elmdendorf wrote that his office received several inquiries about the budgetary implications after the news from HHS on Friday that the agency will not implement the CLASS Act.
