    Abstract

    Examines how a new model of consumer-directed care changes the way that consumers with disabilities meet their personal care needs and, in turn, affects their well-being. The analysis yielded estimated program effects that were large, compelling, consistent across numerous types of measures, and widespread across subgroups. The results provide unambiguous evidence that Cash and Counseling substantially improved the amount and quality of paid personal assistance from the perspective of consumers, with no discernible adverse effects on safety or health.
