Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services Data, 2005~Charlene Harrington and Terence Ng
Introduction~In 2005, the federal-state Medicaid program paid for 37 percent of the nation's estimated $160 billion total long-term care expenditures. This part of the website introduces a series of tables that present the latest available (2005) state-by-state, participant and expenditure data for the three main Medicaid home and community-based service (HCBS) programs, and for total Medicaid Long-Term Care. The three main Medicaid programs are: 1915(c) waivers, home health, and state plan personal care. Each of these programs is described briefly below. Further information on the programs and detailed data analyses are available in Center for PAS HCBS project publications.
The waiver data are taken from the Form 372 reports that states submit annually to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The home health and state plan personal care data are collected annually by PASCenter researchers using a survey of state officials.~
