This brief explains why Medicaid policies lead to so much variation in current state Medicaid long-term care programs, and how those policies have been used in some states to expand the range and availability of services. It also draws lessons from innovative states to suggest reforms in national Medicaid policies that would make home- and community-based services accessible to more program participants.
