Performance Improvement 2001. Evaluation of the Home & Community-Based Services Waiver Program


The Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver program has been operating since 1981 and has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. The percent of Medicaid long-term care spending devoted to HCBS has increased from 10 percent to 19 percent (between the financial and beneficiary-level impacts of the program) in over a decade. The aim of this task order is to gain a better understanding of the broader HCBS waiver program and determine what programmatic mechanisms have been successful.
