In Nebraska, a unique partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services and the state’s Assistive Technology (AT) Act Program offers hope for a national problem. Across the country, many older adults and persons with disabilities have trouble accessing the modifications and AT services they want and need to live in their communities and age in place. As the statewide expert providing home and vehicle modifications, Nebraska ATP diverts older adults and individuals with disabilities from the costly long-term care facilities they wish to avoid. ATP serves between 500 and 800 households annually with Medicaid Waiver-funded services, saving potentially millions in Medicaid dollars. Learn more about this partnership, how services are provided, and lessons learned that can benefit other programs.
