Long-term services and supports dashboard
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) has been at the forefront nationally in helping people with disabilities and older adults live more independently, with greater choice and overall at lower cost than if they were living in institutions* or nursing facilities. Medicaid home and community-based programs** (HCBS) and Minnesota innovations are the cornerstones of this success.
See how the vast majority of people needing long-term services and supports are receiving home and community-based services (HCBS) rather than institutional services in counties throughout Minnesota.
*Institutional services includes spending in nursing homes, Intermediate-care Facilities, and Regional Treatment Centers.
**HCBS services include spending in the Waiver and Alternative Care Programs, Consumer Support Grants, and State Plan Home Care
