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

Part I: Dual Eligibles

IMG_4020On 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
