Design of the case management component of a federally mandated long term care program
To address five questions with respect to case management for long-term care: 1) What agencies should perform the case management functions in a program to provide home and community-based long-term care services? 2) Should the determination of client eligibility be a function of the case management component of the program? 3) How should the case management provided as part of the program interface with the case management provided by other agencies in the community? 4) Should the Federal Government mandate caps on the amount of services case managers can authorize, and, if so, what caps should be mandated? 5) How can client autonomy and choice be assured in a case managed long-term care program?
