Relating to a council on long-term care facilities.
According to the Legislative Budget Board, no fiscal impact to the state is anticipated.
SB 1519 would amend the Government Code, by adding Section 531.0581 to require the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to establish a Long Term Care Facilities Council as a permanent advisory committee to HHSC. The council would study and make recommendations regarding a consistent survey and informal dispute resolution process for long-term care facilities and regarding Medicaid quality-based payment systems for those facilities.
SB 1519 is an administrative bill with no apparent connection to our liberty principles and we remain neutral.
