A07504 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A7504
 
SPONSOR: Eichenstein
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the elder law, in relation to report- ing unmet need for programs and services for the aging   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To increase transparency by requiring area agencies on aging to collect and report unmet need   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1: Amends section 203 of the Elder Law by adding a new subdivi- sion 2a which requires all area agencies on aging, including those in New York City, to collect and report to the State Office for the Aging (SOFA) the unmet need for each program or service they offer. Defines unmet need as any eligible individual seeking participation in a program or service that is turned away or placed on a waiting list due to a lack of resources or capacity. Requires SOFA to provide a report detailing the unmet need to the legislature. Section 2: Sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: In New York City and in New York State overall, the older adult popu- lation continues to grow rapidly, putting pressure on the aging network to provide services to all those who are eligible. For example, Brooklyn is home to more older adults than any other county in the state; older adults now make up 14% of the borough's population, up from 12% in 2007. Area agencies on aging do not currently maintain consistent records of eligible older adults seeking services who are placed on waiting lists or are turned away due to the local agency not having enough resources or capacity to serve. With this data, the state can identify what investments need to be made in order to assure our older adult popu- lation receives safe and quality care.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New legislation.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
