Program areas at Justice In Aging

Health care advocacy - Justice in Aging ensures that low-income older americans are able to access high quality, affordable health and long-term care through medicaid, medicare, and other programs. Through Justice in Aging's expertise in law, elder rights, and the government programs that deliver health care to low-income seniors, Justice in Aging breaks down barriers low-income seniors face in getting the care they need. Justice in Aging advocates to ensure that health care services prioritize home and community-based services over institutions, honor choice, and include strong consumer protections. Further, by focusing Justice in Aging's work on populations who have been marginalized and excluded from Justice, Justice in Aging addresses disparities in access to health care caused by (continued on page 41) ethnicity, english language proficiency, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or other potential disadvantage.justice in Aging advances the health care rights of older adults through an innovative combination of training and technical assistance to local advocates and service providers, administrative and legislative advocacy, and impact litigation. Each year, Justice in Aging provides training and advice on health care issues to several thousand direct service providers.in 2019, Justice in Aging is focusing efforts in the following areas: (1) defending and improving the system of health care and long-term services and supports that today's seniors rely on and ensuring that programs like medicaid and medicare are adequately funded and improved to meet the growing needs of an Aging population. (2) strengthening federal oversight over nursing homes, assisted living, and other long-term care facilities to prevent financial and physical abuse, preserve consumer rights and choice, and meet the growing medical needs of current residents. (3) ensuring that low-income older adults can access the care and services they need from medicaid and medicare to remain healthy. This includes the ability to see a doctor or dentist that accepts medicaid, being able to get medicaid-funded transportation to see their doctors or access care, not being subject to unaffordable charges for the care they receive and being able to receive support with the activities of daily living through medicaid, so they can remain at home and in their communities.
Litigation - as the only national organization focused solely on protecting the rights of low-income seniors, Justice in Aging partners with advocates on the ground who help Justice in Aging monitor and uncover issues that impact poor seniors. When a group needs a champion in the courts, Justice in Aging is there, on its own or in partnership with other organizations, to litigate precedent-setting cases that benefit hundreds of thousands of seniors.current cases include: (1) alexander et. Al. Vs. mayhew and prudom: this lawsuit challenges Florida's medicaid long-term care system for violating title ii of the americans with disabilities act by failing(continued on page 43)to ensure that older adults and adults with disabilities can access needed long-term care outside of institutional settings. (2) hart v. berryhill: Justice in Aging is implementing a settlement on behalf of over 7,000 individuals who were denied or had their disability benefits discontinued due to the social security administration's (ssa) reliance on medical determinations of a disqualified physician. Many of the 7,000 class members now have an opportunity to have their cases re-decided. (3) kelley v. kent: this lawsuit challenges California's failure to implement a federal medicaid law that extends the prior financial protection for spouses of people in nursing facilities to those receiving home and community-based care. California has failed to implement this provision, which went into effect in 2014. As a result, people needing long-term care face the choice of unnecessary institutionalization or going without needed care. Litigation is ongoing. (3) alexander v. azar (formerly barrows v. burwell): this case challenges the lack of appeal procedure for medicare beneficiaries who are classified as patients under observation when receiving care in a hospital, instead of being admitted, leading to thousands of dollars in costs that would have been covered by medicare.
Economic security advocacy - Justice in Aging preserves, strengthens, expands, and improves the income supports that help low-income older americans afford food, shelter, and other basic necessities. Justice in Aging uses its legal expertise to protect and improve programs such as social security and supplemental security income (ssi) so they provide adequate funds to help low-income seniors meet their basic needs; are accessible to all seniors who qualify without arbitrary disruptions, denials, or delays; and are delivered without discrimination based on race, ethnicity, language ability, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or other potential disadvantage. (continued on page 42)justice in Aging advances the economic security of older adults through an innovative combination of training and technical assistance to local advocates and service providers, administrative advocacy, and impact litigation. Each year, Justice in Aging provides training and advice on economic security issues to several thousand direct service providers.in 2019, Justice in Aging is focused in the following areas: (1) ssi program: updating and restoring the ssi program so that it meets the needs of poor seniors today. (2) non-disability appeals: when benefits are denied or disrupted, Justice in Aging works with local advocates and the social security administration to identify and solve issues in the appeals process. When these administrative and advocacy efforts fail, Justice in Aging brings about change through strategic class action lawsuits. (3) raising awareness about senior poverty: through strategic communications and partnerships, Justice in Aging raises awareness about the growing number of seniors Aging into poverty, with the ultimate goal of aligning more people and organizations with the issue and inspiring them to join in and bring about needed change.
