dc.description.abstractCommunity First Choice (CFC) is a Medicaid state plan option authorized through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that supports the delivery of longterm services and supports in home and community settings. We interviewed stakeholders in Maryland, one of the first states to adopt CFC, to assess challenges, benefits, and potential implications of this Medicaid option for state and federal policy makers. Study findings suggest that expanding coverage for home- and community-based services through CFC in Maryland has been financially feasible, expanded the personal care workforce, and supported a more equitable approach to personal care services. We conclude that greater coverage for home- and community-based long-term services is a promising avenue to improve access to care for high-need Medicaid beneficiaries.en_US
