New Jersey Launches MLTSS
On July 1, New Jersey launched its managed care long-term services and supports (MLTSS) program. Details of the transition are discussed below, as analyzed by NAHC’s affiliated National Council on Medicaid Home Care.
Two entry points. Enrollees can gain access to MLTSS either through one of five MCOs, or one of four PACE organizations through the state’s PACE program. For details, see pages 13-16, here. For a recent Council brief on PACE, click here.
Included waivers. MLTSS will encompass home and community based services previously available under waivers. These waivers include the AIDS Community Care Alternatives Program (ACCAP), Community Resources for People with Disabilities (CRPD), Global Options for Long-Term Care (GO), and the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) waivers. Enrollees in these waivers will automatically be enrolled in the MCOs.
