Abstract
In this article, we present population estimates of individuals with disabilities and discuss the manner in which the composition of this population is changing. We then highlight aspects of service delivery systems that are evolving in response to the changing long-term care (LTC) population. Following a summary of financing issues, we discuss several cross-cutting issues related to the organization of service delivery, quality assurance (QA), and financing. Current and future Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) research and demonstrations emerging from these issues are then described.
