The FY’13 budget transferred senior supports and services from the Department of Health to the Department of Human Services. This restructuring:
• creates a single point of access for seniors and people with disabilities and their caregivers regardless of Medicaid eligibility
• improves the coordination of Federal and State funded programs for seniors and people with disabilities, including people who require specialized services for their physical or late-onset disabilities 
• allows for a continuum of coordinated and integrated disability and long-term care resources
• creates the opportunity and the ability for aging adults to remain at home with proper supports
Senior Benefits
This unit administers two prescription drug assistance programs – Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged and Disabled and the Senior Gold Prescription Discount program – the Lifeline utility assistance program, and the Hearing Aid Assistance to the Aged and Disabled program.

Aging and Community Services
Aging and Community Services administers programs designed to make it easier for seniors to get the help they need to support their well-being and maintain themselves in the community for as long as possible with independence, dignity and choice.
