    Community-Based Services are Cost Effective.
    Information Bulletin # 281 (3/09)

    Two recent studies/reports document the many ways Medicaid’s
    Community-Based Long Term Care Services are cost-effective as compared to
    expensive institutional nursing facilities:

    1. "Do Non-Institutional Long-Term Care Services Reduce Medicaid

    Spending?" written by H.S Kaye, M. LaPlante, and C. Harrington. It is in the journal Health Affairs, vol 28, no 1 (Jan/Feb 2009).

    “Taking the Long View: Investing in Medicaid Home &
    Community-Based Services Is Cost-Effective” written by R. Mollica, E.
    Kasser, L. Walker, & A. Houser. It’s in a pub.entitled

    People should NEVER be forced to live in an institution if they do not want to. All options should be made available and affordable to them without restriction. Keep in mind that one day this could be you!
