Eric Holcomb on Health Care

 

 


New Medicaid waiver for Structured Family Caregiving

Q: How will you help expand Indiana seniors' access to quality services provided at home in the community (HCBS)?

Eric J. Holcomb: Hoosiers are entering their retirement years in record numbers, and they are expected to live longer than ever before. As has always been the case, many will turn to family or others to provide them with care. These unpaid caregivers face emotional, financial, and physical challenges unappreciated by most of us. Under my administration, I will instruct the Indiana Division of Aging to continue a new Medicaid waiver service called Structured Family Caregiving (SFC). The caregivers in this model, frequently family members, are paid and supported by a Medicaid certified SFC provider.

John R. Gregg: As Governor I will protect the CHOICE program and work to increase matching funds to utilize more Medicaid Aged and Disabled Waivers so more folks can stay in their homes and independent.

ObamaCare was the wrong answer to a national problem

Holcomb said, "Those of us who feel that the Affordable Care Act was the wrong answer to a national problem just can't continue talking about what we're against; we now have to present what we're for. We need the federal government--the Congress and the president--to give states the flexibility to offer alternative solutions. That's what I will fight for in order to make America safer, stronger and freer for generations to come."
