Home & Community Based Services

In 2014, 52% of all Medicaid long term care spending was on the home & community based services with 80.6 billion dollars.


Home and community-based services (HCBS) provide opportunities for Medicaid beneficiaries to receive services in their own home or community rather than institutions or other isolated settings. These programs serve a variety of targeted populations groups, such as people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and/or mental illnesses.
