Behavioral and Physical Health and Aging Services Administration (BPHASA)
The Health and Aging Services Administration (HASA) was created under Executive Order 2021-14 combining Aging and Adult Services Agency and Medical Services Administration under one umbrella within MDHHS. Michigan's Medicaid Office is also part of HASA and the designated State Unit on Aging function will be fulfilled by HASA.
The Health and Aging Services Administration is requesting a waiver from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) under the requirements from Section 316 for our regular Older Americans Act Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act Title III-B and American Rescue Plan (ARP) Title III-B minimum proportion requirements and the Title III-E Kinship minimum proportion requirement for FY 2022. In order to receive approval from the ACL, a public comment period is required. We are asking for your responses as soon as possible. The Health and Aging Services Administration is requesting a waiver of the requirements for both Title III-B and Title III-E funding sources to allow for maximum flexibility to the State Unit on Aging and the area agencies on aging.
The minimum proportion requirements contain within Title III-B: 10% Access, 10% In-home, 6.5% Legal, and within Title III-E, 5% Kinship.
BPHASA combines Michigan's Medicaid office, services for aging adults and community-based services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, serious mental illness, and substance use disorders under one umbrella within MDHHS.

Care and Living Programs
Alzheimer's Disease is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer's is not a normal part of aging. The greatest known risk factor is increasing age, and the majority of people with Alzheimer's are 65 and older.
Publications and Reports
Michigan's 16 area agencies on aging (AAA) are regional, non-profit agencies created by federal and state legislation to respond to the needs of older adults in every local community. These entities are each a designated planning and service area (PSA), which operates a service delivery system that offers a range of community-based supports and services.
The information on this site may be filtered by area agency on aging region. We present the data this way because state and federally funded programs for adults age 60 and over are organized by AAA region and because older adults are among the most vulnerable when it comes to COVID-19.
