SubjectsNew Mexico’s Coordinated Long-Term Services (CoLTS) Program
The Hilltop Institute’s executive director, Charles Milligan, made a presentation at the 2nd Annual Medicaid Managed Care Summit on February 25, 2009. The presentation, entitled New Mexico’s Coordinated Long-Term Services (CoLTS) Program, was part of a track concerning SNPs (Special Needs Plans) and Integrating Medicaid and Medicare. Milligan painted a portrait of dual eligibles (persons dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid), painted a portrait of long-term care, and discussed New Mexico’s approach to coordinate services for this population, their CoLTS program. This program, which Hilltop helped New Mexico develop, seeks to: promote community-based services (CBS) by diverting or shortening nursing home stays; promote flexible benefit design to achieve new CBS models; improve quality through coordination of Medicare and Medicaid; and achieve financial savings by aligning Medicare and Medicaid incentives.
