This petition is in support of act H.R. Bill 4006. H.R. Bill 4006 is the Community-Based Independence for Seniors Act of 2017.

This act is to establish a community-based plan to target home and community-based care to eligible Medicare beneficiaries. The bill will have 5 Medicare Advantage programs that will enroll 1,000 participants per plan to receive coverage for services such as but not limited to home delivered meals, transportation services, and respite care for caregivers.  By providing community based long term health care services we enable elderly Medicare recipients to age in place, and include long-term care services and support.

Help support this bill to get passed to help beneficiaries of Medicare remain in their homes while receiving services, and avoid costly nursing home care.
