Percentage of government funding allocated to institutional care as compared to funds allocated to Home and Community Based Programs (HCBP)

Numerator

Denominator

Data Interpretation Issues

The calculations for 2018-2020 include only the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) and Nursing Facility (NF) costs. In prior years, all costs were calculated.

Why Is This Important?

According to American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging (AAHSA), Home and Community Based Programs support independence for older Americans and people with disabilities by providing affordable, ethical aging services for individuals and their families.

Other Objectives

'''Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective OA-4''': Reduce the percentage of funds allocated to nursing homes as compared to funds allocated to Home and Community Based Programs (HCBP) to 59.2%.

How Are We Doing?

Between 1997 and SFY 2009, the percentage of funding for institutional care (nursing homes) decreased from 93% to 72%, thereby meeting the Healthy New Jersey 2010 goal of reducing the percentage spent on institutional care. Progress toward the Healthy New Jersey 2020 goal of 59.2% was slower and the target was not met.

What Is Being Done?

The Department of Human Services' [https://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/doas/home/commprograms.html Office of Home & Community-Based Services Quality Assurance] administers a state-funded home and community-based program for seniors and their caregivers ([https://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/doas/services/jacc/index.html JACC]) and monitors the quality of care management services for this program and for the [https://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/dmahs/home/mltss.html Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS)] program.
