Massachusetts is leading the charge with a plan to integrate care for dually eligible individuals and most other states have plans to improve care for that population under an Affordable Care Act Program.
A new web resource has been made available from the National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC) that is a one-stop shop for all information about all the states involved in creating a new service delivery plan for the dually eligible.
The new website is dualdemoadvocacy.org and it consists of recommended background reading, state profiles, and advocacy tools. All of these resources are meant to promote the position of NSCLC, but they are general views that are in the best interests of the individual receiving services. Additionally, those views are in line with preventing unnecessary hospital admissions and keeping people in the community whenever possible.
The site also allows people to comment on NSCLC’s specific recommendations.
The Home Care Alliance is continuing its advocacy on the Massachusetts proposal and will provide more information as it becomes available.
