Last September, the AARP Public Policy Institute, The Commonwealth Fund, and The SCAN Foundation released the first-ever <a href="">State Scorecard on Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS)</a>, which ranked states' LTSS systems. A new set of AARP case studies reveals what factors distinguished states that performed well on the <em>Scorecard </em>from lower-ranked states. <br /><br />
The new case studies, as well as the full <em>Scorecard</em> report and state-specific data, are available for downloading at <a href=""></a&gt;. Also available on <a href="/blog/2012/state-scorecard-long-term-services-and-supports-what-distinguishes-high-low-ranking">The Commonwealth Fund Blog</a> is a post by AARP's Susan C. Reinhard, Ph.D., and Enid Kassner, M.S.W., highlighting findings from the case studies. <br />
