Abstract

In response to the need for the creation of adult health-oriented day care programs, New York State in 1969 enacted the first state legislation and regulations to govern the operation of such programs. This report categorizes existing New York State nonoccupant programs into four types on the basis of the ratio of total ancillary costs to total direct costs and then compares and assesses their costs. Costs and characteristics of registrants in the four nonoccupant models are also described and contrasted. The report then compares the patient characteristics and costs of nonoccupant programs with those of the most similar long-term care providers in the state, namely, certified home health agencies and health-related facilities.
