The article examines the status of the U.S. Community Living Assistance Services and Supports (CLASS) Act. The healthcare reform law, which was conceptualized as an inexpensive and discretional long-term-care insurance program, has yet to be fully functional. The government is said to be not familiar with the law's framework, which was not able to provide any potential for success. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has not yet found a way for the CLASS Act to work.
