Abstract On October 14, 2011, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) informed Congress that HHS had not identified a Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) program benefit plan that is both actuarially sound for the next 75 years and consistent with the requirements of Title VIII of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the CLASS Act). Following this announcement, HHS suspended program implementation activities. Effective January 1, 2011, the CLASS Act established the CLASS program as a federally administered, voluntary insurance program to help working adults cover some costs of long-term-care services and supports. The CLASS Act requires the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG) to submit an annual report to the Secretary and Congress on the overall progress of the CLASS program and the existence of waste, fraud, and abuse in the program. Each report must include findings in four areas: providing cash benefits; determining eligibility; providing quality assurance and protecting against waste, fraud, and abuse; and recouping unpaid and accrued benefits.
