Single Entry Point Systems: State Survey Results
The Rutgers Center for State Health Policy/NASHP Community Living Exchange Collaborative conducted a survey of the 50 states to identify states that operate single entry point (SEP) systems and to identify the characteristics of SEPs. A single entry point is defined as a system that enables consumers to access long term and supportive services through one agency or organization. The survey identified some common elements across SEPs. The results also indicate that there is considerable variation among SEPs in the functions they perform, the populations they serve, and the organizations that function as the SEP.
