Health plans and accountable care organizations are working with Medicaid programs to transition fee-for-services long-term services and supports (LTSS) to a managed care model known as managed LTSS. With more individuals with disabilities seeking to living in their own homes or in community settings, payers must take proactive steps to ensure individuals receive the right service and in the right setting. This white paper details the actions health plan decision makers should consider while developing a comprehensive managed LTSS program.
