Long Term Care Transformation Project

Image stating percent of seniors continues to grow

Baby boomers – born 1946 to 1964 – are now age 52 to 70. By the year 2030, 71.5 million Americans will be over age 65 and by the year 2020, one in every five Hoosiers will be an older adult. The fastest growing segment of the population is those age 85 and over. Indiana must transform its long term care system to successfully meet the demands and address the challenges of these changing demographics.

Over the last two years, the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration’s (FSSA) Division of Aging (DA) and Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) worked closely with key stakeholders to examine challenges and potential ways to modernize the home and community-based services (HCBS) systems in Indiana. The state seeks to redesign the delivery of publicly-funded HCBS.

FSSA will continue this Long Term Care Transformation Project through the second half of 2017 to create a plan to make home-and community-based services more accessible, increase awareness of all long term care options, and improve the efficiency, effectiveness and quality of the long term care system in preparation for meeting these needs.
