Managed Long-term Services and Supports (MLTSS)
MLTSS for People for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Strategies for Success
The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD), along with the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and Ari Ne’eman of Mysupport.com are the authors of this important report MLTSS for People for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Strategies for Success.
Because there are unique challenges in implementing a managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) program for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), the report provides context on the intersection of program design and participant advocacy and outlines successful strategies for both states and health plans. Promising practices from the few MLTSS programs delivering I/DD services are highlighted throughout. Check it out if your state is engaged in MLTSS or is thinking about/planning for the transition.

WebEx recording is available for viewing “The Experience of and Outcomes for People with I/DD and Their Families in Managed Health Care: Lessons Learned” (Recording) (PowerPoint Slides)
This webinar presents results from a four year evaluation of an integrated care program in which people transferred from fee–for-service Medicaid to managed health care. It will include innovative ways to assess the views of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities ( IDD ) regarding their health and healthcare, outcomes of the transition, and strategies resulting in better health care outcomes. Lessons learned will address the role of continuity of care, care coordination, consumer choice, and family involvement in meeting the health care needs of people with IDD and ways to improve these aspects.
