Care Cap Legislation

Clause 155 of the Health and Care Bill, which is currently being considered by Parliament will amend the Care Act 2014. It will change the care cap provisions which were enshrined in the original Act and as a result, any local authority contribution towards paying for a person’s care would no longer be counted towards the cap on their total costs.

Analysis of the change suggests that poorer people will be disadvantaged as they face the same social care costs as the wealthiest in society.
