A new survey of Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) costs by Lincoln Financial finds that Connecticut was among the costliest states in the nation last year. Connecticut ranked highest for nursing home care (both private and semi-private rooms) and in the top five for assisted living arrangements. Home health care was slightly less costly, relative to other states, but Connecticut was above the national average in all categories. Neighboring Rhode Island was the least costly for home health care provided by a licensed nurse. Lincoln Financial’s site also has sobering projections for LTSS cost trends, out to 2040, by service, state, and by metropolitan region.
