Medicaid Aged and Disabled Waiver programs provide community based long-term care to about 14% of community-living older adults who are disabled in activities of daily living (ADL) (Ng, Harrington, & O'Malley, 2008).
Disability in ADL is the most common reason for enrollment in Medicaid Aged and Disabled Waiver HCBS programs (Fortinsky, Fenster, & Judge, 2004).
Recent analyses of Indiana Aged and Disabled Waiver recipients suggest that the total number of hours of care received is low, with participants receiving on average approximately 20 hours of personal care, 4 hours of homemaking, and 5 home-delivered meals per month, with nearly one in five recipients not getting any of these three services (Xu et al., 2010).
The study included 3,087 enrollees who had been placed on the Aged and Disabled Waiver. The Aged and Disabled Waiver assists frail older adults as well as physically disabled younger adults.
Among enrollees in an Aged and Disabled Waiver program, greater volume of attendant care and homemaking is associated with lower risk of nursing-home placement.
The success of Medicaid Aged and Disabled Waiver HCBS programs in delaying nursing-home placement depends, in part, on whether the program is meeting enrollees' ADL needs.
For example, in fiscal year 1999, Alabama's average Medicaid costs per person for its aged and disabled waiver totaled $6,612 per year, compared with $22,771 per year for nursing facility care.
In Oklahoma's MR/DD waiver, there were time limits on each waiver service, but in its aged and disabled waiver, the use of individual cost caps sufficed to limit service use.
