Source: New York Health Policy Research Center, February 2009

This report provides a comparative analysis of New York State versus 18 selected states on various items related to long‐term care (LTC) such as state demographics for the elderly (defined as persons over age 65), poverty level, spending on long‐term care, long‐term care policies and services, and quality of nursing home care. The report is designed to demonstrate how New York State may differ from other states and inform hypotheses about why New York spends more Medicaid dollars on long‐term care delivery relative to most other states. The report was written for the New York State Department of Health, with funding support from the New York State Health Foundation.
