April 24, 20158 State Plan on Aging 2015-2019 In New York State, under the Older American’s Act of 1965 (codified as 42 U.S.C. § 3001-3057(n)) and New York State Elder Law (Chapter 35-A of the Consolidated Laws), the New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) is the designated State Unit on Aging. NYSOFA is responsible for the development and administration of a State Plan that addresses federally prescribed goals and priorities as required by the Older American’s Act. The New York State Plan is organized to be consistent with the AoA/ACL four focus areas: –Older Americans Act (OAA) Core Programs, –AoA/ACL Discretionary Grants, –Person Centered Planning, and –Elder Justice
April 24, 20159 NYSOFA’s Priorities Include Strengthening core OAA and state funded services to meet existing and future needs among older adults and their families; Expanding and strengthening the states No Wrong Door to serve all populations, regardless of age or payer source; Increasing the business acumen of the network to strengthen partnerships with health care providers and to develop models that reach new populations; Working with other state agencies and local partners to prevent readmission to hospitals; Teaching older adults how to manage complex chronic conditions and working to expand to other populations;
April 24, 201510 Providing one-on-one assistance to understand the complexities of and navigating Medicare and other health insurance; Assisting individuals in understanding, applying for and receiving benefits they may be eligible for; Supporting caregivers of all ages to continue to serve their loved ones; Marketing the value of network services in health care and LTSS reorganization; and Instituting measurements and metrics to determine the efficacy of programs and for program/service improvements. NYSOFA’s Priorities Include
April 24, 201511 New York Aging Network Structure NYSOFA partners with 59 area agencies on aging (AAA’s), 56 of which are county based, one AAA located on each of the St Regis and Seneca Reservations and one AAA run by the City of New York. Combined, NYSOFA and the AAAs contract with over 1,200 organizations to deliver cost-effective, non-clinical long-term services and supports in the homes and communities of at risk older adults. AAAs and partners afforded the opportunity to be innovative and flexible in meeting locally determined needs
April 24, 201512 Current Status of the Network The OAA pays states primarily for care and services for those over the age of 60, over time the networks portfolio has expanded to assist other populations. State and Federal funding in the amount of $207 million leverages an additional $235 million in resources from municipal governments, private fundraising, participant contributions and cost-sharing. Network services are not entitlements, funds are capped requiring counties to develop and sustain partnerships and leverage other community resources.
April 24, 201513 Aging in NYS New York’s total population is over 19 million individuals, and the State ranks fourth in the nation in the number of adults age 60 and over – 3.7 million. Demographic characteristics changing over time have important implications for the state plan on aging.
