Supporting people to achieve meaningful outcomes requires resources. State and local agencies that serve elders and people with disabilities too often face declining budgets and increasing costs. Increasing demand for supports add to the challenge. PCG can help you maximize your resources, freeing you to do what’s most important: making a positive difference in the lives of the people you serve.
Nationally, we’ve helped agencies that serve people who are aged or disabled maximize the available resources and ensure the dollars achieve the intended impact for the individuals they serve. We have a deep knowledge of the challenges that are faced by state agencies serving individuals who are elderly and people who have disabilities. From developing equitable provider reimbursement rates to analyzing Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) expenditures, the breadth of our aging and disability finance consulting is considerable. Specifically, we can:
- Review, analyze, update, and develop reimbursement rates for providers of the services for individuals with disabilities and elders. Our rate work with non-profit includes agencies, both large and small – from single-shingle providers working out of their home to multi-million dollar organizations with a national presence.
- Update and improve how states fund Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) to more effectively serve individuals 60 years and older and ensure these individuals have access to services and resources needed to live an independent and fulfilling life.
- Develop HCBS rates that support the funding of services, provided by highly qualified staff; as well as the development of individual budget allocation methodologies that are equitable and easily understood, while ensuring that HCBS funding is consistent with state and federal requirements and meets individual’s needs.
Serving a wide range of populations that includes older adults at risk of nursing home placement, PCG Public Partnerships, a PCG company, helps state, county, and local public agencies deliver a consumer-directed service model that allows individuals with disabilities and their families to make their own choices about what services they receive, how services are delivered and by whom, within their budgets.
