NASHP Report: Paying Family Caregivers through Medicaid Consumer-Directed Programs - State Opportunities and Innovations

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) has published a report, "Paying Family Caregivers through Medicaid Consumer-Directed Programs: State Opportunities and Innovations."

Family members provide significant amounts of care to relatives with complex needs who live independently. Programs that pay family members to provide care can help support home- and-community-based care for Medicaid enrollees and help states address demand for long-term services and supports.

This report, supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation, explores how Medicaid agencies in Connecticut, Florida, and Virginia have developed innovative approaches to consumer-directed programs to support older adults and people with physical disabilities and their family caregivers.

NASHP is holding a webinar on May 21 to share highlights from the report.
