Long Term Supports & Services


Long term supports and services means services for people who need help getting through the day, and includes people who need assistance every day or many times per day. LTSS is provided through Medicaid waivers. Currently there are different Medicaid waivers for different disability types. LTSS services include, but are not limited to, personal care, non-medical transportation, adult day services, personal alert devices, and home modification. People with developmental disabilities can get supported employment services. Some people may need LTSS on a 24/7 basis and others need only a few hours a week.

Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)

People with need for long-term services and supports may get a Medicaid waiver if they have income under 3 times the SSI standard and assets under $2,000 not including one home and one vehicle.
