Medicaid managed care for long term services and supports (MLTSS) is now in use or being considered in over half of the country. Medicaid managed care makes managed care organizations (MCOs) responsible for the delivery of LTSS to older adults and people with physical or intellectual or developmental disabilities. Early implementation often focused on the delivery of care for older adults and people with physical disabilities, leaving a gap in experience for its use with people with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD).

Over the past five years, there has been explosive growth in the number of states implementing comprehensive Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs; however, most have excluded LTSS services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Serving people with I/DD requires unique approaches to program development, implementation, and management.
