Long-term care bill to be in front of Health and Human Services Committee

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – A bill sponsored by Representative Ryan Cwach of Yankton would set up a study on long term care services and supports.

He says nursing home costs are rising rapidly.

Cwach says the study would lay out details of the current system.

Cwach says the current system of paying for nursing home care is unbalanced and unfair.

Cwach’s bill is scheduled to be heard before the House Health and Human Services Committee today.
