Home care agency owners know that in addition to promoting independence, services that allow vulnerable populations to remain in their homes and communities have the potential to lower costs and prevent adverse outcomes. In the aftermath of a pandemic that wrought devastation within long-term care facilities, the federal government is seeking to rebalance long-term care and inject billions of dollars into states to expand and strengthen home- and community-based services. As states navigate this new opportunity, HCAOA partner, ATI Advisory, with support from Arnold Ventures, has released a new resource to help state policymakers guide their decision-making.
In an in-depth review of the literature over the past decade, coupled with an analysis of existing approaches, ATI Advisory outlined near-term and longer-term opportunities for states to maximize home- and community-based services and advance integrated care models for people who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid.
Opportunities to Improve Access to Home and Community-based Services.
Don’t forget - HCAOA and ATI Advisory have partnered to offer members state-specific data on the Medicare Advantage landscape to pinpoint which plans are offering home care as a benefit, and how they can get connected. This unique program includes the full state report and two free webinars with the team at ATI Advisory to develop your agency’s action plan to work with Medicare Advantage plans. ATI’s Medicare Advantage Supplemental Benefits State Report includes ATI’s research on Medicare Advantage plans’ benefit packages to enable providers to quickly and easily learn the county-level benefit offerings, such as in-home support services.
