As health care delivery systems rapidly transform, states are redesigning their long-term services and supports (LTSS) and integrating them into Medicaid managed care programs for children and adults with special needs. These initiatives include efforts to meet the new federal Medicaid managed care rule, develop new payment models, and create specialized managed care plans. This table features states that provide LTSS to children through Medicaid managed care programs and details key elements of their LTSS structures and systems. The information was collected from the most recent publically available contracts between state Medicaid agencies and managed care organizations, Medicaid managed care program websites, and waiver applications approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
