This dissertation focuses on how home and community-based services (HCBS) influences the well-being of disabled elderly Medicaid recipients in Pennsylvania. Specifically, this dissertation examines different recipient characteristics associated with different lines of HCBS and if specific services are associated with a higher or lower risk for experiencing a hospitalization. The public health relevance of this dissertation is that it examines how functional support of elderly people can prevent hospital admission. By preventing hospital admission, HCBS can help people maintain living independently.
