This public policy issue brief from the Alzheimer’s Association describes functional eligibility issues for people with dementia and discusses how six states determine eligibility for Medicaid-funded long-term care services. Based on an analysis of these states provisions, the paper makes recommendations for appropriately assessing the long-term care needs of people with dementia, and for setting level-of-care criteria that treat people with physical and cognitive impairments equitably.
