Comprehensive assessments play an important role as states seek to provide more long-term care (LTC) in home and community-based service (HCBS) settings rather than in institutions. A well-designed assessment instrument identifies the full range of a consumer’s service needs so that they can be addressed, thus preventing or delaying the need for institutionalization. This report identifies trends and emerging best practices in comprehensive assessments for HCBS. Assessment instruments from 13 states are included in the analysis.
