The HB 1374 Long-Term Transitions Working Group was authorized in the 2007 legislative session to tackle a number of problems in the Medicaid program unnecessarily delaying
timely service for individuals covered by Medicaid who qualified for long-term care.
The report outlines system problems and proposed policy recommendations. CHI facilitated the meetings of the work group and prepared the final report.
The six recommendations included re-instituting the Fast Track Program, developing a comprehensive communication plan, enhancing advocacy efforts on behalf of long-term care consumers and establishing executive level leadership for Colorado’s long-term care programs and funding.
