We work to ensure that the nation’s growing number of aging individuals in managed care have access to long-term services and supports that are person-centered, promote as much choice and independence as possible, and allow them to receive care in their homes and communities.
GENERAL MLTSS RESOURCES
As a growing number of states place the responsibility for providing long-term services and supports (LTSS) to seniors and people with disabilities under managed care organizations (MCOs), strong consumer protections must be incorporated to ensure that states and MCOs develop models that best support independence and the ability of beneficiaries to remain in or return to community settings.
FLORIDA SPECIFIC MLTSS RESOURCES
Seeking to prepare both advocates and consumers for Florida’s plan to move most consumers in long-term care to managed care, the Academy of Florida Elder Law Attorneys, Florida Legal Services and Justice in Aging published a number of easy-to-understand materials.
Long-Term Services and Supports:
Beneficiary Protections in a Managed Care Environment
A toolkit for advocates on LTSS-specific beneficiary protections developed in partnership with the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF).
MLTSS CONTRACT LIBRARY
Advocate’s Library of Managed Long Term Services and Supports Contract Provisions
This resource allows advocates to research and compare contracts between states and managed care organizations. Includes state contracts with over 1,000 citations.
