Long-term Services and Supports

About This Measure

Medicaid is the primary payer for long-term care services. CMS and states support service delivery through a range of settings—from institutional care to community-based long-term services and supports.  These services can provide beneficiaries with disabilities and chronic conditions:

  • Independence
  • Improved health
  • Improved quality of life

In the future, the Scorecard will include measures that describe the delivery and outcomes of long-term care services for Medicaid beneficiaries as measures and data become available.
