New AARP Report Finds Mixed Results Among State Governments' Efforts to Balance Long Term Care Services Under Medicaid
Date:7/11/2008

vices in a way that allowed older people the greatest independence. The ability of some states to accomplish substantial reforms for older people and adults with physical disabilities -- as well as increased HCBS options for the developmentally disabled -- demonstrates that obstacles to balancing LTC options can be overcome.

AARP actively works to increase opportunities for the aging population to age in place with home and community based services. This year, AARP successfully worked for the inclusion of funding for enhanced home and community based services in the New York State budget. The final New York State budget included funding for seven regional caregiver centers including respite services, start-up grants to enable communities to develop support services to enable older persons to age in place and enriched social adult day care services.

The report examines Medicaid LTC funding because it is the primary payer for LTC in the country. "This underscores the need for better government and private sector financing options for long-term care. New Yorkers need more options to plan and pay for their long-term care. Investing in home and community based services can be both cost-effective and responsive to the preferences of older people and adults with disabilities," said Aronstein.

The new report includes state rankings and can be found at: http://www.aarp.org/research/longtermcare/programfunding/2008_10_ltc.html.
