The Role of Area Agencies on Aging in Providing Case Management Services to Florida's Elders, Report No. 96-80, April 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) in other states provide case management. Allowing Florida's AAAs to provide case management has several possible benefits, including better integration of services and reduced costs.
  • However, changing the current system by mandating that AAAs provide case management services may be premature in light of the pending re-authorization of the Older Americans Act and the potential for the role of AAAs to change under the state's long-term managed care initiatives.
