The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) may now be on track to shake up the U.S. long-term care (LTC) system as well as the acute care system.

PPACA provisions dealing with acute care attracted most of the media attention this spring when the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the constitutionality of the law.

PPACA Section 10202 is supposed to create $3 billion in incentives for states that offer home and community-based LTC services as an alternative to nursing home-based LTC services.
