What is a Managed Long Term Care Plan?

Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) helps people who are chronically ill or have disabilities and who need health and long-term care services, such as home care or adult day care, stay in their homes and communities as long as possible. The MLTC plan arranges and pays for a large selection of health and social services, and provides choice and flexibility in obtaining needed services from one place.

Managed Long-Term Care Plans (MLTCP) provide long-term care services (like home health and nursing home care) and ancillary and ambulatory services (including dentistry, and medical equipment), and receives payment from Medicaid. Members get services from their primary care physicians and inpatient hospital services using their Medicaid and/or Medicare cards.
