HARTFORD – State Representative Jay Case (R-Winsted) earned the AARP Capitol Caregiver award for his work on the Money Follows the Person (MFP) program in the 2018 Legislative Session. MFP is designed to provide Connecticut residents with long-term care options through a transparent process.
According to AARP, Case earned the Capitol Caregiver honors because he was integral to the expansion of MFP, ensuring senior residents in the Northwest Corner and throughout the State of Connecticut will have greater consumer autonomy and confidence.
“Our senior population is quickly growing, making it vital for solid healthcare infrastructure to be put in place. MFP provides a consumer the necessary stability and information needed to make informed long-term care choices. Utilizing programs such as MFP will certainly keep costs to the consumer in-check, consequently making Connecticut a more attractive place to live and retire to,” said Rep. Case.
AARP’s list of Capitol Caregivers includes 58 state legislators and 6 governors from more than 20 states across the country.
