LTSS Briefs for Health Plans

Time to read: less than a 1 minute.

Many states are implementing managed care and expanding long-term services and supports (LTSS) options to better integrate and coordinate care for Medicaid recipients. LTSS encompasses a broad range of services and supports designed to help older adults and people with disabilities live in their homes and communities rather than in institutional settings. LTSS providers include nursing facilities, personal care agencies, and other home and community-based service (HCBS) providers, as well as paid caregivers under participant-directed service options. These providers may have limited experience in working with health plans. Resources for Integrated Care has created several brief documents to assist health plans in establishing relationships with LTSS providers.
