Today, NTOCC along with several other care transition stakeholder groups sent a letter to Marilyn Tavenner, Acting Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), expressing concerns about the implications of the 40% funding cut to the Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP) enacted by the Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013.

The letter outlines the group’s concerns for the sustainability of the CCTP, a critical resource that was created to foster partnerships between hospitals and community-based organizations that have the experience and expertise to address the breadth of challenges faced by older adults.   The letter asks CMS to address specific questions about how the remaining funding will be allocated and how current partners of the program will be affected. The letter is attached; view it now. .
