Home & Community-Based Services: State-Only Funded Programs in New Hampshire
States may be required to contribute match funding to some federally funded long-term care (LTC) programs and to different extents. In FY 2003 states spent 21.4% of total state expenditure on Medicaid (NASBO, 2004). Total expenditures for HCBS are increasing and totaled $16.4 billion in FY 2001, with states paying between 1.7% and 13.3% of total health care expenditures on HCBS in FY 2001 (Milbank 2003). Medicaid spending grew quickly in the early 2000s, forcing state legislatures and officials to investigate ways to contain Medicaid costs rather than expanding services (Coleman et al 2003).
