New Jersey Revised Statutes § 30:4e-6 - Findings, Declarations

30:4E-6. Findings, declarations
The Legislature finds and declares that:

a. The need to offer care services to the growing number of frail elderly and disabled persons in New Jersey and the benefits derived from the provision of these services are well documented;

b. While State government has responded to the home care needs of the State's elderly and disabled population through the Medicaid Community Care Program for the Elderly and Disabled (CCPED), there remains a substantial number of people whose home care needs have not been met;

c. Many of these frail elderly and disabled people in the "no-care" zone are equipped to impoverish themselves to receive services under Medicaid;

d. The limitations on resources that a person may have to participate in the Medicaid program or the Community Care Program for the Elderly and Disabled are so restrictive as to make many of those in need of home care ineligible for needed services;

e. Many people who need care to remain in their homes do not have the funds to pay privately for the services; and

f. It is therefore necessary to establish a program to extend such services to a greater number of the State's elderly and disabled population.

L. 1988, c. 92, s. 2.
