Follow-Up Report on the Community Care for the Elderly Program Administered by the Department of Elder Affairs, Report No. 97-23, December 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • The Department has implemented all of the recommendations from our January 1996 report.
  • One direct result is an additional $5.95 million of federal funding to serve frail elders in Florida through the Medicaid Waiver Program. Moreover, it is possible to expand this amount in the future.
  • Another result is that the money collected directly from clients has more than tripled from $375,000 last year to a projected $1.2 million this year.
  • The funding and operational structure of the CCE Program may change in the near future as the Department develops a performance-based program budget for fiscal year 1999-2000.
