This study addresses issues related to the provisions of home and community-based services (HCBS) under the Affordable care Act (ACA) legislation of 2010. ACA allowed important voluntary provisions for the expansion of HCBS under Medicaid. Although the new provisions are valuable, the law does not set minimum standards for access to HCBS, and the new financial incentives are limited especially for the many states facing serious budget problems.
