Paying MN’s Long-Term Care Bill: A Study of Private- and Public-Pay Patterns

October 12, 2022



In 2020-2021, Rachel Shands, MSW and Peter Spuit, MSW, working within the State of Minnesota’s Department of Human Services, conducted an Elderly Waiver Spenddown Study. The goal of the study is to increase the shared understanding of the circumstances and decisions of older Minnesotans eligible for enrollment in the Elderly Waiver program. A primary focus is on how these older adults make a range of decisions about paying for long term care supports with their own financial resources. The presenters have structured the session to explore the key findings and policy implications derived from the recent study.
