County Long-Term Care Financing Demonstration Program Solicitation Letter

August 19, 2010

Dear County Executive/Manager:

As part of recent budget actions, the state legislature passed the Governor's proposal to establish a county long term care financing demonstration. This new law will allow up to 5 counties that currently operate county nursing homes to transform their long term care systems. I encourage you to carefully review this new opportunity.

As this demonstration program is optional, please indicate your interest to Mark Kissinger, Deputy Commissioner, Office of Long Term Care, New York State Department of Health as soon as practicable but no later than September 23, 2010, via e-mail to the following address: .

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Richard F. Daines, M.D.
