The Medicaid Personal Care Services Option Part II: Consumer-Directed Models of Care


This "ASPE Research Notes" article is a follow up to the earlier article The Medicaid Personal Care Option Part I: Cross State Variations and Trends Over Time that provided a descriptive overview of Medicaid personal care services programs. Part II compares models of care that promote greater or lesser degrees of consumer control or choice and discusses research findings associating greater consumer satisfaction with increased choice. It concludes by discussing the relationship of these variables to indicators of worker satisfaction and worker pay and benefits, and by signaling some unanswered questions.
