Managed Long-Term Services and Supports
Subscribe to this page
Nebraska Medicaid has been in the process of developing a statewide Medicaid managed care program for the delivery of long-term services and supports (MLTSS). Examples of long-term services and supports include nursing facility services, Personal Assistance Service (PAS), home health services, and home and community-based waiver services such as Assisted Living; Home Care/Chore; Home-Delivered Meals; Personal Emergency Response Systems; and Respite Care.
In addition to long-term services and supports, the benefit package for MLTSS will include physical and behavioral health care and pharmacy.
Nebraska Medicaid plans to issue a Request for Proposal in 2016 for MLTSS to implement July 2018.
MLTSS goals include:
- Improving client health status and quality of life by better coordination of medical care, behavioral health care, and community-based services and supports.
- Promoting client choice and use of the right services and supports at the right time in the right amount.
- Increasing client access to responsive, quality services and supports.
- Using financial resources wisely to sustain Nebraska Medicaid.
