Long-Term Service and Supports: The Future Role and Challenges for Medicaid

This report examines the structure and impact of Medicaid’s role in long-term care. Based on a roundtable discussion of policy makers and experts and drawn from a body of health services research, the report highlights policy challenges facing the Medicaid program today and identifies issues in providing long-term care going forward. By gathering evidence to address key policy issues, such as integrating services, benefit design, quality monitoring and financing, the report can serve as a foundation for the current and ongoing policy debate regarding Medicaid’s future role as a provider of long-term care services and supports for low-income elderly and disabled Americans.
