In Her Words

“I have been studying long-term services and supports across the nation for nearly 20 years, so it is hard to surprise me. However, whenever 34 states take on major new initiatives aimed at cutting costs and improving care, I take notice, especially given that most of these efforts will occur within the next two years!” (W Fox-Grage , States Move to Coordinate Care)
