Long Term Services and Supports – Program Information
Descriptions and Purpose
Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) are defined as institutional services or home and community-based services and suppports. LTSS is designed to help people who have disabilities or chronic care needs to optimize their health and retain their independence. Services may be episodic or on-going and may be provided in a person's home, in the community (for example, shared living or assisted living), or in institutional settings (for example, intermediate care facilities, hospitals, or nursing homes).
You must meet both the financial need and the functional/clinical “level of care” need to qualify for Medicaid LTSS.
