Long Term Services and Supports and Chronic Care Coordination: Policy Advances Enacted by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act enacts a variety of initiatives aimed at enhancing long term services and supports (LTSS) and coordination of primary and chronic care for older persons and adults with disabilities.  Many of these establish delivery systems demonstrations and Medicaid options that states could adopt to implement state reforms. This NASHP report, supported by THE SCAN Foundation, analyzes the Act’s provisions addressing: 1) National voluntary long term care insurance; 2) Medicaid options and incentives for financing LTSS expansions; 3) Other LTSS provisions; 4) Primary and chronic care coordination; and 5) Nursing home reforms.
