Role of Managed Care
• Older adults eligible for Medicaid have been required
to enroll in Medicaid managed care since 1983:
Minnesota Senior Health Options (MSHO).
• Currently, 92% of EW participants receive their
services through a managed care organization.
• MSHO integrates Medicare and Medicaid primary,
acute, drugs, home care and other long-term services
and supports as well as Elderly Waiver services the
first 180 days of care in a nursing facility.

Minnesota’s ADRC
Making the Shift to a Fully Integrated
System
• It Started in 1999 with a small prescription drug program
• Establish a Comprehensive Statewide Service in 2001 to
prepare for aging of boomers
– Move to a system that does “Information and Assistance” –
not I and R
• Longer Calls
• Higher levels of credentialing of staff
– Development “niche areas” or specialties that fill the gaps
• Helped with Medicare Part D in 2005
• And Now: Care Transitions
Minnesota’s ADRC
But the real keys to our success:
• Branding. Branding. Branding.
• A People not Programs Philosophy which means simplifications
and streamlining for the consumer (not for the programs,
government etc)
• Thinking in a flexible and agile manner and sticking with our
core values
– Be relevant
– Be accessible
– Be ready when the student arrives
• Thinking like a single unit not 7 state units with seven area
agencies – we are one to the consumer

What is the Return To Community
Initiative?
• Passed in 2009 by State Legislature and is based on research
conducted by the U of MN School of Public Health & the
Indiana University Center for Aging Research which can be
found at this link:
– http://www.dhs.state.mn.us/main/dhs16_148973
• Utilizes the MinnesotaHelp Network™ which includes the
LinkAge Lines (Senior, Disability and Veterans), the website
MinnesotaHelp.info®, and in-person assistance through Senior
LinkAge Line staff and volunteers.
Minnesota’s ADRC
Why is this service important?
• It focuses on private pay individuals
– Assumption is assistance to transition home but then
ongoing follow up in the community will help people
avoid spend down
• Intensive follow-up services are available for people
assisted out of the nursing home
– Also available for those we don’t specifically assist
but who naturally discharge as they are a target
group for follow in the assumptions
• The effort is being evaluated under an AHRQ (Agency
for HealthCare Research and Quality) grant by two
universities.
Minnesota’s ADRC
Experience to Date - Statewide
