AARP Indiana is showcasing the City of Monticello for their effort in bringing Mobile Integrated Health Services to our city through grants over the past two years.  MIH assists older citizens to stay in their homes, provide health services to reduce senior hospital readmissions, and assist young women with maternity needs during the early months of a pregnancy.

AARP Indiana is encouraging the State of Indiana Legislators to pass SB 142, HB 1378 and SB 10 to require health plans to reimburse MIH services and create permanent funding for new and ongoing MIH programs across the State of Indiana.
