What is Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS)?
Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) refers to the delivery of long-term services and supports through New Jersey Medicaid’s NJ FamilyCare managed care program. MLTSS is designed to expand home and community-based services, promote community inclusion and ensure quality and efficiency.
MLTSS uses NJ FamilyCare managed care organizations (also known as HMOs or health plans) to coordinate ALL services. Currently, NJ FamilyCare members have their acute and primary health care services and their home and community based services coordinated by different care management agencies. MLTSS provides comprehensive services and supports, whether at home, in an assisted living facility, in community residential services, or in a nursing home.
Participants previously enrolled in one of the following Medicaid Waiver programs were automatically enrolled in MLTSS effective July 1, 2014
- Community Resources for People with Disabilities (CRPD)
- Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver (TBI)
- Global Options for Long Term Care (GO)
Managed Care Organizations (MCO)
Unlike the previously administered Medicaid Waivers, which were coordinated by independently contracted care management agencies, MLTSS uses a managed care approach. At this time, NJ contracts with these five MCOs to administer NJ FamilyCare, including MLTSS:
