Jan Christensen JD, MSW

Medicaid Long Term Care Task Force

  • The Vision:

    • Michigan will achieve over the next ten years a high quality, easily accessible, publicly and privately funded system of long term care supports and services.

    • The arrangement and type of care and supports for each person will be determined by “person centered planning.”

“For the Last Two Decades Michigan’s Elderly and Disabled Citizens have Pleaded for a More Humane, Consumer and Family Friendly LTC System.”

“We will, of course, do the right thing but only after we have tried everything else.”

Winston Churchill

Medicaid Long Term Care Task Force – Single Points of Entry

  • Create a System of Single Points of Entry:

    • Person Centered Planning / Supports Coordination

    • Mandatory Medicaid Access Point;

    • Nursing Home Transition;

    • Level of Care Determination;

    • Quality Assurance;

    • Advocacy / Consumer Appeals; and

    • SPEs are non-direct service providers

“Your eyes won’t see too clearly if your imagination is out of focus.”
