Welcome to the 2019 Aging in America Conference!

We are excited to bring the conference to New Orleans, known as the “Big Easy” but also a model of resilience when things weren’t so easy. This year’s conference focuses on the concept through programs and sessions on livable communities, disaster preparedness, transportation, technology solutions, policy implications and much more. Many of our popular programs, such as the Managed Care, Livable Communities and Diversity Summits will return, in addition to new programming that focuses on the rapidly changing developments in the field. The conference will open with our first-ever Town Hall Meeting on Monday morning. This open forum will provide the opportunity to address the major aging policy topics that have the greatest impact on the lives of older adults. We hope you will join us.

We are now in year three of the Trump presidency. The voters have spoken in the midterm election and the 2020 campaign is underway. Where is the aging agenda? Will Social Security remain untouched? Will efforts to block grant Medicaid succeed? What is in store for Medicare and Medicare Advantage? Will the re-authorization of the Older Americans Act be timid or bold? Does long-term care even register as an issue this year? Will the ACA get further dismantled? These and other issues will be discussed.

There has been great emphasis in the past few years for community-based organizations, specifically area agencies on aging, to establish payee relationships with healthcare entities. Most of these relationships have been centered on reimbursement for provision of evidence- based health promotion programming. This session will look at the issue of family caregiver evidence-based programming, such as the Stress-Busting Program™, and the possible alignment with medical practices that are certified or pursuing certification as a patient- centered medical home. Panelists will discuss a current model to integrate caregiver supports in a large primary care practice. Barylak will contrast this discussion with programs/policies currently in use in Canada, to give an international perspective.

This symposium will look at three different approaches to improving the health and well-being of older adults. We will explore a research initiative entitled Aging Strong 2020, the purpose of which is to impact members’ personal and social investments in their well-being and to integrate these findings into various population health management programs. We will also examine the use of animatronic pets to reduce loneliness, highlighting studies that show how animatronic pets appear to provide significant benefits for the well-being of isolated older adults. Finally we will review the LifeBio program—a group intervention that encourages participants to capture their life stories in order to positively impact wellness through reminiscence—and its potential for decreasing loneliness and increasing social connectedness and well-being.

Malnutrition is one of the greatest threats to successful aging for older adults today. Raising awareness, developing policies and implementing innovative solutions across the care continuum to combat this public health crisis is imperative. Join us in an interactive session to hear from policy experts, share your thoughts and stories, and learn feasible steps to combat older adult malnutrition.

Living longer has its advantages, but it also increases the likelihood of needing long-term care, something that tends to be more costly every year. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2018, the median cost for some long-term care support services can run as high as $100,000 per year, with some care costs increasing two to three times the 2.1 percent U.S. inflation rate. This means that when one member of a family or community needs help with age-related issues, every person who knows and loves them may be deeply affected by their need for care and the associated costs. During this session we will take a closer look at the rising cost of care, its impact on caregivers, and resources to help with planning for long-term care.

This session will examine a newly established community- based care management collaboration launched in response to Pennsylvania’s transition to a Medicaid managed long- term services and supports system. Panelists will describe a partnership designed to deliver enhanced care management for vulnerable populations and emerging best practices derived from the implementation experience. We will share policy and programmatic considerations from the health plan and community-based care management organization perspectives when executing a mainstream Medicaid managed long-term services and supports program.

Aging While Black: Understanding the Role of Faith and Culture to Address Health Disparities Among African Americans

Sponsored by The Balm In Gilead, Inc.

Wednesday, April 17 | 10:30–11:30 AM | Bolden 1 (Level 2)

CE Credits: 1

There is a profound relationship between faith and health, particularly in the African-American population. Studies have found that African Americans are one of the most religious racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Through the development and utilization of effective mobilization and partnership with faith institutions across the country, there is a tremendous opportunity to replicate and implement evidence-based programs. This session aims to help public health organizations and healthcare professionals understand the role and impacts of culture, particularly faith, among African Americans, and how to use this dynamic to address a variety of health disparities, social determinants of health, and health literacy.

Universal Family Care: Addressing Long-Term Care as Part of a Broader Care Insurance Program Sponsored by Caring Across Generations and National Academy of Social Insurance.

Wednesday, April 17 | 12:30–1:30 PM | Strand 1 (Level 2)

CE Credits: 1

The risk of needing to provide or receive care is universal across generations. A new policy proposal to address the care needs of individuals and families is Universal Family Care (UFC), a social insurance program that would protect families against the financial risks of three often interrelated caregiving risks: long-term services and supports, paid family and medical leave, and early child care and education. A program addressing these three risks at once offers marked synergies. Policy options for the design of Universal Family Care were fleshed out by a National Academy of Social Insurance study panel in 2018-19. This session will discuss its findings. Presenters: Alexandra Bradley , MPH, Caregiving Policy Consultant, National Academy of Social Insurance; Marc Cohen , PhD, Clinical Professor, Department of Gerontology and Director of LTSS Center, UMass Boston; Anne Tumlinson , MA, Principal and Owner, Anne Tumlinson Innovations, LLC; Benjamin Veghte , PhD, Research Director, Caring Across Generations.

Preparing and Positioning for the Future: The Policy and Politics of Advanced Illness, Palliative Care and Hospice Sponsored by National Partnership for Hospice and the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC).

Wednesday, April 17 | 2:00–3:00 PM | Strand 1 (Level 2)

CE Credits: 1

As the population ages and people live longer with more chronic illness, our healthcare system is shifting to one that rewards value over volume and outcomes over inputs. Advanced care providers are poised to help achieve the sought-after triple aim of improved care experience, better health for populations, and reduced costs for some of the system’s sickest, most vulnerable, and most expensive patients. In order to best position the field to achieve these goals however, stakeholders need to understand the broader political and policy currents that will shape the context of advanced illness care in the future. Join this session to hear two experts as they navigate the broader legislative and regulatory trends impacting the advanced illness landscape. Presenters: Mollie Gurian , JD, MPH, Chief Strategy Officer, National Partnership for Hospice Innovation; Andrew MacPherson , Senior Policy Advisor to the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care and Principal, Healthsperien, LLC.

Coming Soon to a Medicare Advantage Plan Near You: Housing, Veggies and Church Visits Sponsored by Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan.

Wednesday, April 17 | 3:30–5:00 PM | Strand 2 (Level 2)

CE Credits: 1.5

With the enactment of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, changes in both the definition of supplemental benefits for chronically ill beneficiaries and “uniformity” requirements in the Medicare Advantage program have opened the doors to targeted interventions for enrollees with serious illness. These changes afford Medicare Advantage plans greater flexibility to innovate by tailoring programs to better serve the unique needs of beneficiaries living with chronic conditions. This session aims to support strategic planning and implementation activities by outlining options and proven strategies for driving high value care for beneficiaries with serious illness. Drawing on best practices gathered across the country, speakers will provide a roadmap for integrating benefit and care model design, enhancing case management’s impact, and creating an effective network.
