Advocacy

Magnifying the voices of senior living to improve resident care

Our Advocacy

From the Indiana General Assembly to regulatory agencies to the United States Congress, our team of professionals advocates for your communities and residents. We track and develop policy that impact senior living operations and clinical care and ensure that you, our members, know about these developments and have opportunities to make your voices heard.

It is critical for leaders of government to hear directly from you, both as providers of care and as constituents. Our team can help you make these connections and have a positive impact on public policy.

Stand Up For Hoosier Seniors

We Care Long Term

Hoosiers are worried. Indiana is moving ahead with a plan to pay insurance companies hundreds of millions of dollars to take over the state’s Medicaid-covered long-term services and supports. This is a substantial and concerning move by the State that will likely put Hoosier seniors’ access to essential health care services and quality care at risk. This transition is also projected to result in significant reductions in Medicaid funding for health care services and place insurance companies in control of approving long-term care services.

This legislative session, we must all come together to make our voices heard. We invite you to join our advocacy campaign – We Care Long Term – to voice our concern against the state’s proposal and urge our state representatives and senators to support alternative solutions that can take Indiana in a different and better direction.

Take action now to learn more and contact your local legislators to voice your concern against the state’s plan.

Long Term Services and Supports Reform

As IHCA/INCAL continues to prohibit managed care companies from managing the health of our frail and vulnerable population, Indiana Medicaid is engaging IHCA/INCAL and other stakeholders to begin redesigning Medicaid for the aged and disabled populations to provide both community and institutional services. This will be a multi-year project that commenced during the summer of 2019.
