Home and Community-Based Services

Expanding Access to Services that Help People
Age at Home

Seniors and people with disabilities who receive Medicaid should have access to the home and community-based services that enable them to live with dignity and independence in their homes. Under Medicaid law, funding exists to give consumers the ability to receive necessary long-term services and supports without moving into a nursing home or other healthcare institution. We work at the federal and state level to help expand and preserve home and community-based funding for settings that are truly non-institutional, and provide assistance to state advocates to ensure that low-income seniors get the care they need in the setting they prefer.
