Managed Long-Term Services and Supports: Whitepaper

Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) are in place for those most in need, including individuals with complex health needs due to aging, chronic illness or disability. It’s predicted that the demand for MLTSS will increase dramatically in the coming years due to an aging population and individuals continuing to live longer. In fact, an individual turning 65 today has a 70% chance of needing MLTSS in the future.1

Through MLTSS, states have an opportunity to improve the sustainability of their Medicaid programs, improve the health care experience for enrollees and caregivers, reduce costs and improve health outcomes.
