State Experiences with Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

Download Publication (pdf)

October 2017

Managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) is one tool states use to coordinate care and manage costs for beneficiaries who use long-term services and supports (LTSS). This population has complex health care needs and disproportionately high Medicaid expenditures. As of October 2017, 22 states have implemented MLTSS programs. The number of states with MLTSS programs has risen significantly in recent years, growing from just eight in 2004.

This slide deck incorporates the presentations of three expert panelists who were invited to discuss state experiences with MLTSS:

  • Michelle Herman Soper, director of integrated care at the Center for Health Care Strategies;
  • Curtis Cunningham, assistant administrator of long-term care benefits and programs at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services; and
  • Sue Kvendru, coordinator of senior managed care programs at the Minnesota Department of Human Services
