The FY’13 budget transferred senior supports and services from the Department of Health to the Department of Human Services. This restructuring:
• creates a single point of access for seniors and people with disabilities and their caregivers regardless of Medicaid eligibility
• improves the coordination of Federal and State funded programs for seniors and people with disabilities, including people who require specialized services for their physical or late-onset disabilities 
• allows for a continuum of coordinated and integrated disability and long-term care resources
• creates the opportunity and the ability for aging adults to remain at home with proper supports
 
 
Senior Benefits
