MLTSS & Integrated Care

The Aging and Disability Partnership for Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS), a resource center funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL), is led by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a) and is a partnership between n4a and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN), the Disability Rights and Education Defense Fund (DREDF), the National Senior Citizens Law Center (NSCLC) and Health Management Associates (HMA). The goal of the project is to leverage the Aging and Disability Networks’ extensive infrastructure, service capacity and expertise to ensure the delivery of efficient, high-quality MLTSS to older adults and people with disabilities.

The Aging and Disability Partnership will help ensure that Aging and Disability Networks can bridge the gap from their current service models to MLTSS models by providing expert training and technical assistance that draws upon emerging trends in the Aging/Disability and MCO fields. This project will also function as the vehicle to address training and technical assistance needs to help the Networks gain a firm knowledge of managed care principles, common language in the MLTSS arena and the business planning and operations needed to develop business relationships that serve the needs of the Networks, MCOs, and most importantly, the seniors and people with disabilities we jointly serve.
