Research and surveys show that Indiana has more nursing homes than other states, which translates that many seniors in the state age in institutionalized facilities. Data shows that about 80% of Indiana seniors are institutionalized. This was determined not to be beneficial, hence the birth of the Indiana pathways program.
Indiana Pathways Program is designed to help promote the health and well-being of seniors and people with disabilities who need assistance with activities of daily living due to long-term or who require supervision and support due to cognitive impairment.
The program will provide person centered services, ensure smooth transitions between home, hospital, or health institution. The program will begin next year on July 1st.
The Objective of the reform is to ensure that members live and age in place, and some will be enrolled in community-based services.
Who will be involved?
Members who are 60 years or older will be enrolled in the pathway program.
