The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) in collaboration with the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) produced a new report, Demonstrating the Value of Medicaid MLTSS Programsto begin to fill the gap in evidence to support the value of state MLTSS programs.

States identified the following issues as important outcomes to pursue when implementing an MLTSS program and to measure when demonstrating its value:

  • Rebalancing Medicaid LTSS spending from institutional care to home and community based services;
  • Improving member experience, quality of life, and health outcomes;
  • Reducing waiting lists for waiver services and increasing access; and
  • Increasing budget predictability and managing costs.
