The Transformation of Long Term Services and Supports

Many states are undergoing or are about to undergo a dizzying array of long-term services and supports (LTSS) transformations. The lagging economy and increased demand for publicly funded LTSS are placing pressure on state policymakers to find solutions. As a result, many states either have or plan to implement Medicaid Managed LTSS, with 12 states having existing programs and another 11 with plans for implementation. At least 28 states are focusing on improved integration of care for people who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid. Many states used the economic downturn as an opportunity to balance services from institutional to noninstitutional settings, with 27 states reporting that home and community-based services census increased from fiscal year (FY) 2010 to FY 2011 and 31 states reporting expected increases from FY 2011 to FY 2012.
