The Better Care Better Jobs Act has been reintroduced in the new session of Congress by Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., and Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich.
The Better Care Better Jobs Act would increase payment rates to promote recruitment and retention of direct care workers, increase wages and develop and update training opportunities, according to a news release from Casey’s office.
The legislation also would provide support to the CMS to conduct oversight and encourage innovation to benefit direct care workers and care recipients.
