Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS)

Don’t just feel well. Live well.

Need help with grocery shopping and making meals? Getting cleaned up and dressed? Going to your doctor appointments? As part of Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS), we help you get the home- and community-based services to help you stay in your home, with your family and friends.

Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS)*

You may qualify for CBAS if you:

  • Are 18 years or older
  • Have health problems that make it hard for you to take care of yourself and you need extra help

If you qualify, we’ll send you to the CBAS center that best meets your needs. If there is no center in your area, we’ll make sure you get the services you need from other providers.

Services may include:

  • Skilled nursing care
  • Social services
  • Meals
  • Therapies
  • Family/caregiver training and support
  • Rides

Long-Term Care (LTC)*

If you need more care than these programs can provide, your service coordinator can work with you to find other LTC options in a skilled nursing facility or similar location. To receive LTC services, a written request must be made by your primary care provider (PCP).

If you are currently in a skilled nursing facility, you do not have to change your facility.

* Certain eligibility requirements must be met to qualify for these services.
