Minnesota has been given a green light to deliver better care and more choices for senior citizens and people with disabilities. The fed- eral government has granted formal approval for the state to proceed with its Reform 2020 initiative - a nation- leading, innovative approach to delivering long term care services. This initiative, the result of bipartisan efforts, aims to help more seniors and people with disabili- ties stay in their homes and remain active and indepen- dent rather than being forced into costly nursing facilities. "Minnesota has been rec- ognized as having the best on-one support to help older adults, people with disabili- ties and their family mem- bers understand and choose the long term care services that best fit their individual needs. More funding for commu- nity-based care - Reversing and partially restoring deep cuts in reimbursement rates for home and community based services that help peo- ple with disabilties stay in their homes. One place to report abuse - Consolidating more than 160 separate phone services into one easy-to-reach hot- line to report the abuse of seniors and other vulnerable long term care system in adults. , ..... the- nation,'-"'-said-'Human ..... These, measures-represem' Services Commissioner justone portion of the state's' Lucinda Jesson. "But we can do better - and we will do better - under this new model. Minnesotans deserve the choice to live with dig- nity, and get the quality care they need in their own homes for as long as possible. Hard-working Minnesotans, regardless of their abili- ties, should be empowered to contribute meaningfully in their communities and in the workplace. And if doing both of those things will save the state money in the long-run, that's even better." Federal approval for the state's new Alternative Care initiative will free up an additional $58 million over four years in state funds to reinvest in services that will keep more seniors and people with disabilities in their homes and communi- ties. Those services include: More employment oppor- tunities - Investing in sup- port services to help more Minnesotans with dis- abilities find and maintain employment in their com- munities. More help in choosing quality care - Providing one- bipartisan Reform 2020 ini- tiative. All told, the initiative is expected to save and rein- vest an estimated $121 mil- lion over the next four years by transforming the state's long term care system. Other key components of the ini- tiative are still awaiting fed- eral approval. "We know Minnesotans are getting older, and that is going to put more fis- cal pressure on our state in the future," said Jesson. "Reform 2020 anticipates this and looks to get people help earlier so they can live as independently as possible for as long as possible." • Sentinel . • Tribune Tip. • Line . • If you see news • • happening or • • have a story • • idea call our • • News Tip Line. • • 274-6136 or • 1-800-410-1859 Due to staff limita- • tions we may not • always be able to • • respond to your tips • or ideas.
