News: Errington pushes for expanded access to home-based health care

Senator Sue ErringtonOn Tuesday Sen. Sue Errington joined with lawmakers and advocates from the AARP and Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging to promote legislation that would make it easier for people on Medicaid to get home health care services.

Sen. Errington said, “Balancing Indiana’s long-term care system by expanding access to home and community based services makes sense for the individual and for the state. Home is where most people want to be if they don’t need the round-the-clock skilled nursing services of a nursing home. It makes sense for the state because Medicaid dollars can support nearly three people with home and community based services for every one person cared for in a nursing home.
