Enacted as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the CLASS program aimed to establish a national voluntary insurance program for purchasing non-medical services and supports necessary for individuals with functional limitations to maintain community residence. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was to release details of the program by October 2012. The program was supposed to be financially self-sustaining. However, HHS found the program to be unfeasible. The CLASS Act was later repealed in January 2013 as part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. (See Long-Term Services and Supports chapter)
