These measures theoretically target resources to the people who most need services, but functional limitation criteria are often set so high that many people with a genuine need for PAS are considered ineligible.
The Medicaid Waivers, a special class of federally funded PAS programs, explicitly link program expenditures to nursing home expenditures, requiring states to demonstrate a decline in nursing home placements due to the provision of PAS (the so-called "cold bed" clause) (Litvak & Kennedy, 1992).
PAS programs have largely been designed to serve people with physical disabilities, and very few programs define functional limitation broadly enough to allow service delivery for people with exclusively cognitive or psychiatric disabilities.
Aside from eligibility criteria, access to PAS programs may be restricted simply because potential consumers and service professionals are not aware of the services available.
