Mission:

"The Ohio HCBS Coalition advocates for a strong home and community-based supports system that provides all Ohioans the opportunity to thrive and stay connected and engaged in our homes and communities."

Goals:

  • Maintain and expand home and community-based services and supports in the next biennium budget across all populations and systems

  • Leverage current state and federal funding to ensure access to quality providers in the home and community and prevent a reduction in services

  • Expand transitions out of long-term care facilities and into the community through programs like HOME Choice

  • Identify those most at-risk of institutionalization and provide care coordination to prevent placement in a long-term care facility by increasing support to transition coordinators

  • Increase reimbursement rates for providers across all systems ensuring individuals are able to receive care in their homes and community

  • Ensure providers, specifically home health and personal care aides, to PPE without putting a financial burden on those providers

  • Ensure additional funding to providers to offset additional costs incurred during this pandemic

  • Increase access to providers in the community ensuring the expansion of system capacity

  • Ensure individuals have access to safe, affordable, and accessible housing including home modification
