Tool for Aiding States Developing and Adopting Value-based Medicaid Payment Models for Home- and Community-based Services

By the end of last year, the Medicaid programs in nearly half of all U.S. states had contracted with managed care plans to cover long-term services and supports for adults, children and seniors with chronic illnesses and disabling conditions. The Center for Health Care Strategies, Inc., which has partnered with nearly every state in the country to promote innovations in publicly financed health care over the past 24 years, recently created a tool to help states that are developing and adopting value-based Medicaid payment models for home and community-based services for long-term care.
