New Data on Service Use and Spending for HCBS

LeadingAge NY is committed to supporting its members’ efforts to engage in data-driven planning. Such information can also support the development of successful grant applications supported by compelling demographic, utilization, quality and cost data. We have further expanded the data page of our website to provide more resources. The latest document is a data brief entitled "Home and Community-based Long-Term Care in New York's Medicaid Program:New Data on Service Use and Spending," issued by the Medicaid Institute at the United Hospital Fund.  It documents the shift of Medicaid HCBS from fee-for service into managed care between 2010 and 2013, highlighting regional differences in services and spending. It evaluates the growth in Medicaid managed long-term care and the corresponding decline in fee-for-service HCBS, particularly in personal care use; reflecting an explicit policy goal of New York.
