Lemons or Lemonade: Leveraging the Medicaid Managed Care Rule to Improve Managed LTSS

Wednesday, October 25th
9:15AM-10:45AM

Nearly half of all states now capitate Medicaid Managed Long-term Services and Supports (MLTSS), and some have achieved significant outcomes. New federal rules, such as the Medicaid managed care rule and the Home and Community Based Services rule, pose challenges, but they can also help states improve services and overcome resistance to change. This session explores key federal policy changes impacting MLTSS and examines how two states approached these changes while working with managed care organizations, provider groups, and consumers.

  • Patti Killingsworth, Assistant Commissioner, TennCare
