Evidence from State Survey on Medicaid Managed Care

Lilly Hummel

The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) released a new report, Demonstrating the Value of Medicaid Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) Programs. The report aims to partially fill the gap with data and evidence from a survey of state agencies and a review of relevant outside research, and to also serve as a jumping off point for future study. States identified the following issues as important outcomes to pursue when implementing an MLTSS program and to measure when demonstrating its value:
  • Rebalancing Medicaid LTSS spending from institutional care to home and community based services;
  • Improving member experience, quality of life, and health outcomes;
  • Reducing waiting lists for waiver services and increasing access; and
  • Increasing budget predictability and managing costs.
