The Department of Social Services must administer a demonstration project that will “provide specialized long-term care for chronically disabled and dependent patients with traumatic head, brain or spinal cord injuries, who are ventilator dependent, or suffer severe neurological dysfunction and disorders, including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy” and other conditions specified by the Commissioner. Connecticut defines “specialized long-term care as “goal-oriented, comprehensive, inpatient care…” provided in coordination by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, and other relevant professionals. The department may utilize a maximum of three facilities and seventy-five beds to administer the demonstration project, but may increase the size of the demonstration project after January 1, 2000.
