Brief Description:

In May of 2013, legislation was passed directing the creation of a Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Report Card for Minnesota providers as part of a larger proposal that is focusing on redesigning access for Minnesotans who need long term care services and supports and their caregivers. The report card will provide helpful information to consumers, their families and case managers about HCBS services which they can use when comparing service options.  The report card seeks to provide a greater level of quality in three domains of the lives of people who use these services:  quality of life, quality of care, and quality of choice.

Target Audience:

Consumers of HCBS services, caregivers, service providers, nonprofits, city, state, and local governments, Senior LinkAge Line® staff, AAA supervisors and directors, service coordinators (i.e. county social workers), families of children with disabilities, health systems, nursing home discharge planners/social workers, directors of nursing, state of Minnesota agencies, the general public
