Long-Term Care

CaringOver the past decade, the Department of Health and Hospitals has engaged stakeholders in a comprehensive effort to reform long-term support and services (LTSS) by striking the appropriate balance between providing care in institutional and community settings, improving quality of care, expanding service options, and addressing financial sustainability. In December 2012, DHH issued a Request for Information seeking creative, innovative and viable strategies to move forward with its next phase of delivering coordinated care through the creation of a new managed long-term supports and services (MLTSS) program. On Friday, August 30, 2013, DHH published its initial concept paper outlining the principles and foundation of the LTSS transformation and to provide a framework for ongoing stakeholder feedback and engagement.
