With PathWays, you get support your way – to live life your way.
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration will launch a new program in 2024 for Hoosiers aged 60 and over who receive Medicaid (or Medicaid and Medicare) benefits. Research shows that most older adults want to age at home. Or they want to age independently in their communities. The State believes 75 percent of Hoosiers who join the program will be able to get long-term care at home. With PathWays, older Hoosiers can pick a health plan. And that plan will help them to get the services and support they need to live as independently as possible. The program will not change or expand Medicaid benefits. But each qualifying Hoosier will have a care and services coordinator. These coordinators will help them get all the benefits for which they qualify. Hoosiers in the program may qualify for support like transportation to their doctor’s office. Or they may qualify for help in making meals. Or they may qualify for home-health visits or going to an adult day center. There are many other services and support available. It all depends on what the senior is qualified to receive. About 120,000 Hoosiers qualify for this program in Indiana.
