May 2011
State Health Watch;May2011, Vol. 18 Issue 5, p8
The article reports that home and community-based services (HCBS) are poised to expand but there are very long waiting lists which show a lot of unmet needs. It states that the financial crisis may mean that some U.S. states cannot take advantage of opportunities to expand HCBS and they face pressure from constituents. There are lawsuits in 34 states for failure of state Medicaid programs to provide HCBS to prevent individuals from unneeded institutionalization. States can save money by implementing HCBS through control of admission to nursing homes.
