The Implementation of SEA 493:
A Policy Education Series from The Generations Project

 

The Generations Project is beginning a new series of monthly articles that will report on the implementation of Senate Enrolled Act 493, the 2003 law enacted by the Indiana General Assembly to re-balance the state’s system of long term care.  SEA 493 is based on a systems change model researched and developed by The Generations Project in 2002.  The law was considered nationally significant at the time of its passage but little was done to implement it until late 2005 when FSSA Secretary Mitch Roob stated in a public hearing:  “SEA 493 is the law, we recognize that, and we are going to implement the law.”   For the member organizations of the Project, and the many interests represented by the Indiana Home Care Task Force, that was great news. 

 

Consistent with Secretary Roob’s announcement the pace of activities associated with the SEA 493 process has dramatically increased in 2006.  Beginning in July The Implementation of SEA 493 series will chart those changes and their merits on this website.
