State Trends in the Delivery of Medicaid Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

Lilly Hummel

On July 20, 2016, the Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc. published a new brief, “State Trends in the Delivery of Medicaid Long-Term Services and Supports.” As many states are now shifting their focus to expand the reach and effectiveness of their managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs, this brief summarizes insights and trends from seven selected states (Arizona, California, Kansas, Minnesota, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Texas). One key finding highlights state and federal policymakers’ emphasis on addressing supportive housing needs as a critical component for safety keeping individuals in the community. The brief provides examples of efforts by states to dedicate Medicaid resources to establish strong housing and MLTSS program linkages and requiring health plans to do the same, among other efforts.
