Kaiser Releases Reports on Managed Care for Long-Term Services and Supports

October 26, 2011

The Kaiser Family Foundation’s Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured released two timely issue briefs October 26 that explore key topics related to Medicaid and long-term care.

One of the two reports, Medicaid’s Long-on Term Care Users: Spending Patterns Across Institutional and Community-based Settings, provides an overview of long-term care users and their acute and long-term care service spending.

The second, Examining Medicaid Managed Long-Term Service and Support Programs: Key Issues To Consider, looks at the important factors for states to consider if they are contemplating a shift to covering new populations and long-term services and supports benefits through managed care arrangements such as capitated payments to traditional risk-based managed care organizations.
