Long-Term Care for the Elderly and State Health Policy

Abstract

This policy brief reviews three broad strategies that states could use to control spending for Medicaid long-term care services for the elderly: bring more outside resources into the Medicaid long-term care system to offset state expenditures; reform the delivery system so that care can be provided more cheaply; and reduce Medicaid eligibility, reimbursement, and service coverage.
