Many of the opportunities made available by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) can be leveraged to work together and to build on existing initiatives. The result can be a strengthened infrastructure for service provision and a long-term services and supports (LTSS) system that can better meet the needs of Medicaid beneficiaries. This National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) issue brief, written by Hilltop Director of LTSS Policy and Research Cynthia H. Woodcock, MBA, summarizes key provisions of the ACA and considerations for states seeking to take advantage of these new opportunities.
