More than 12 million Americans receive long term services and supports, and as the population continues to age, this number is only projected to grow.
Medicaid is the single largest payer of LTSS. Efforts to deliver Medicaid LTSS through managed care arrangements and, whenever possible, in the home and community are becoming increasingly common throughout the country. Federal law grants states considerable flexibility in how they design their programs to implement these reforms. The purpose of this briefing is to highlight emerging best practices in Medicaid LTSS program design that promote high-quality, cost-effective, person-centered care.
