The “ideal” long-term care system discussed in Chapter Three would base eligibility for services on functional needs rather than financial needs. Find the criteria for eligibility for Medicaid coverage for a nursing facility in your state (NYC) (you can get the eligibility standards directly from the state or from a nursing facility). 

Do you think they measure functional need vs. financial need? How close do they come to the “ideal” criteria? How would you change them if you could?

**You are free to answer this question based on your home country (which is New York) with regards to long-term care in general OR you can use online resources.**
