Components of Care for Trust Beneficiary Groups
The Trust and the Department of Health and Social Services support the components of care illustrated in Figure 15, ranging from prevention at the bottom to acute care at the top for people requiring intensive care. Public education and prevention services reach large audiences. Services in the middle of the triangle are home and community based and used by those people requiring a less intensive level of care.
Although economies of scale restrict some services to urban areas, the Plan’s vision is that appropriate services would be available when needed across the state.
The components of care listed are only those that serve three or more beneficiary groups.
