Implementing Long-Term Care Reform in New York's Medicaid Program

Published: 2012

This report examines the implementation of Medicaid policy changes in New York, which will require participation in care management for dually eligible beneficiaries receiving long-term care services. Until now such beneficiaries have typically received these services under a fee-for-service payment model.

With the new State policy shifting the Medicaid long-term care health benefit into a new care management framework, this report explains and considers potential strategies and options for improving the management of long-term care services for elderly and disabled Medicaid beneficiaries, and addresses the issues of balancing residential and community-based long-term care, refining reimbursement for long-term care services, and providing effective care management.
