On July 15, ANCOR submitted comments to the National Quality Forum (NQF) Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Committee. The Committee had issued an interim report titled, "Addressing Performance Measure Gaps in Home and Community-Based Services to Support Community Living: Priorities for Measure Development," last month, and solicited public comment on it. ANCOR is a member of the Disability and Aging Collaborative (DAC), a workgroup of aging and disability national organizations, who developed comments in the course of its work. ANCOR endorsed the comments of the DAC workgroup in addition to submitting our own comments, which are attached below.
The NQF HCBS Committee will hold its next public meeting via the web on August 4 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm ET. An agenda and meeting materials will be available on the NQF HCBS website here.
