Medicaid Managed Long-term Services and Supports Programs for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

3:00pm to 4:00pm EST
States are increasingly providing services to Medicaid beneficiaries with complex health care needs through managed care delivery systems to help control the cost of care, improve health outcomes of enrollees, and improve the quality of the care enrollees receive. States are also starting to include behavioral health and long-term services and supports (LTSS) in Medicaid managed care – services that historically have been provided in fee-for-service systems. States have used MLTSS delivery systems less frequently to serve CYSHCN. However, MLTSS may have great potential to improve quality of life for CYSHCN in Medicaid, by increasing access to care, as well as beneficiaries’ control over their care.
This national webinar will provide an overview of a recent National Academy of State Health Policy (NASHP) analysis of how state MLTSS programs serve CYSHCN. It will also feature presentations from Texas and Iowa, highlighting their approach to providing LTSS for CYSHCN through managed care.
