This In Brief examines the extent to which states have balanced the delivery of Medicaid-funded long-term services and supports to people in their homes (or in more homelike settings in their communities) and in institutions. It offers a unique focus on older people and adults with physical disabilities separate from other long-term care populations, such as people with developmental disabilities. The paper explores what states have been able to accomplish under current Medicaid law and addresses the impact of federal policies on state efforts.
