Crossing the Rubicon: Finding New Roles and Purpose for the Aging Network in the Age of Managed Long Term Care Services and Supports

Event Date: 
07.09.2013 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: 
(GMT-08:00) Pacific Time
Short Description: 

Part of the “Conversations with GIA,” Series, sponsored by Grantmakers in Aging.

Full Description: 

Across the country, the pillars of the traditional aging and disabilities service network – Area Agencies on Aging and Centers for Independent Living – find themselves in the midst of a struggle to define a role for themselves in the world of home- & community-based services in the aftermath of states’ decisions to transition their long-term care systems to managed and integrated care.  Responsibility for eligibility determination, functional assessments, service planning and care management will pass to managed care organizations or other vendors in this model. This extraordinarily rapid shift seems to have caught most of these agencies by surprise and the potential threat to their continued existence comes not just from the loss of funding, but also from the realization that they will no longer serve as the gateway and center-of-gravity for the aging and disability delivery systems.  This webinar will help define new roles, purpose and new markets for these vital links in the nation’s aging and disability delivery systems, a pathway that can help these community-based agencies inhabit new roles in the emerging system and serve new audiences, and the expectations that these agencies will need to satisfy in order to perform these functions appropriately and sustainably.
