2 WHY NOW?? ONE WORD REBALANCING LTC Expenditures are climbing at an unsustainable rate growth. LTC Medicaid Expenditures in CT are about $2.5 billion/ year. This makes up 13% of overall state budget Over 50 % of entire DSS budget

3 HCBS VS. INSTITUTIONAL CARE In 2009 CT spent more Medicaid $$ on institutional care vs. HCBS. Percent of Medicaid LTC Dollars Out of total $2.5 Billion Institution 65% HCBS 35% HCBS Institution

4 REBALANCING THE MEDICAID LTC SYSTEM MEANS changing the focus and funding priorities to home and community based services. Why??

48 WHERE SHOULD CT GO FROM HERE? Create a 1915 (i) Universal waiver Eliminating the silos and creating a Universal waiver to serve all individuals regardless of disability and age. Maintain state funding for programs that help keep individuals at home and prevent pre-mature SNF placement. (CHCPE, CHCPD, CSRP) Build capacity in HCBS need to have a strong workforce that can meet the demand and needs of these individuals that choose to receive their LTC in the community.

49 WHERE ARE WE ACTUALLY GOING? Older Americans Act funding could face major cuts under the new Debt Ceiling Deal Reductions in the amount of federal funding for community service programs for the elderly including cuts in home care, meals on wheels, medical transportation, Low-income heating assistance. If Medicaid cuts come to fruition, HCBS waivers are vulnerable to cuts in funding and enrollment caps. If all this happens we will actually reverse the national efforts of rebalancing.

50 HOW DO WE SURVIVE THIS STORM & MORE IMPORTANTLY. how do we continue to assist our clients and the rapidly increasing population of elders and persons w/ disabilities in these challenging times?
