Description

States and the federal government are moving rapidly towards MLTSS-a broad set of initiatives aimed at expanding managed health care to include personal assistance and other services for the frail elderly and younger people with disabilities. In many models, fee-for-service reimbursement would be replaced by capitated, risk-based arrangements where managed care organizations (MCOs) and their health and long-term care partners work together to control costs and improve outcomes through fully integrated care.

Currently, most MLTSS initiatives are focused on the Medicaid population, particularly those dually eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. Fully integrated care has great, but largely unproved, potential.

The Catholic Health Association of the United States commissioned this paper, authored by Howard Gleckman of the Urban Institute, to explore, for our eldercare members and others, the scope of current managed long-term supports and services (MLTSS) initiatives, their potential impact on patients and providers and the opportunities and challenges they present. Made available in February of 2014, this 24-page article, which includes two case studies, is available hardcopy or for electronic download.
