A statistical model was developed to assess the effect of rebalancing on overall spending for long-term services and supports (LTSS). The model indicates that spending is affected by the way rebalancing is implemented: Gradual rebalancing can reduce spending by about 15 percent over ten years. Because many states continue to experience budget crises, policy makers must think carefully before altering spending patterns for LTSS and adopt strategies to successfully reduce overall spending.
