Abstract

Public and private costs were examined for nursing home applicants participating in the Virginia Nursing Home Pre-Admission Screening Program. Applicants diverted to community care were less dependent and had greater informal supports than those admitted. Public and private payments for community care were lower than for nursing home care. Public payments for community care were consistently lower than for institutional care even when controlling for differences in nursing resource requirements.
