Future of LTSS: Advancing Integrated Care in a Changing Landscape of Medicaid and Medicare

Part I: Dual Eligibles

On March 8, 2017, LTQA invited 40 member and other stakeholder organizations to a day-long Retreat to find common ground and align around opportunities for advancing high-quality, person-centered, integrated services and supports in the new political environment. The Retreat produced a framework for further efforts to develop shared strategies across stakeholders to achieve more widespread LTSS integration.

Part II: Beyond Duals

On May 4, 2017, LTQA held a second session of the Retreat to build on the priorities identified in the first meeting on March 8th, and to advance a vision of integrated care and a structure for federal and state financing that would promote high-quality, integrated models for those with LTSS need. A report for the second session is forthcoming.

Participants heard three proposals to expand LTSS integration beyond duals, which can be found below.
