Long-Term Care Reform: Wisconsin’s Experience Compared to Other States

fis23_240x240In FY 2003, Wisconsin spent almost 42% of its Medicaid dollars on long-term care. Policymakers are anticipating increased demand for these services, especially as the population ages. Despite the contributions of informal caregiving by family and friends, which is valued at three times the amount spent by Medicaid, the cost of providing long-term care is still growing. In 2004-2005, Wisconsin spent almost $2.2 million on longterm care services, about half on both institutional care (52%) and home- and community-based programs (48%). Three national experts will review how Wisconsin and other states are reforming long-term care.
