Achievements

  • In 2005 KAAD was successful in being granted the ability to do case management.
  • In 2006 KAAD successfully advocated for a 10% rate increase.
  • In 2007 KAAD facilitated a change from 3 hour Medicaid billing units to 15 minute units.
  • In 2011 KAAD began to be instrumental in removing the daily cap from the 15 minute units per day, while keeping the weekly cap. Medicaid agreed to this change and it was put into effect.
  • In 2012 and 2013 KAAD worked toward the process of all adult day health care’s being granted the ability to offer more HCBW Services, including allowing centers to order non-durable supplies such as incontinence supplies, nutritional supplies, etc. Medicaid has agreed to this change and now centers have the ability to do those things.
  • In 2016 regulations went into effect to allow ADHC’s to offer in home attendant care services, in home delivered meals, goods and services, etc. As mentioned above KAAD began working with the state and stakeholders in 2012 to initiate these changes.
  • In 2018-2019 KAAD representatives were involved in every aspect of the 1915 (c) Waiver Redesign and worked with the Cabinet for Health and Human Services and Navigant to insure Adult Day Health Services were included as an important part of the health care delivery system in Kentucky.

It is important to note that these accomplishments would not have been possible without the collective voice of KAAD. As our membership grows, we will be able to accomplish even more. Together, we can make sure that adult day providers have a unified voice represented by KAAD.

KAAD is currently following closely any proposed changes to the regulations concerning ADHC for impact to service recipients and providers.
