President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities Report on Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

May 22, 2013

The President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities (PCPID) 2012 report on Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) has been released. The purpose of the report is to provide background on MLTSS to assist the intellectual and developmental disability community with understanding the changes and ways to influence outcomes and to provide the President and Secretary of Health and Human Services with recommendations.

PCPID members developed a clear and understandable report that includes a glossary of managed care terms and a list of frequently used acronyms. The report also provides 15 recommendations in the areas of disability stakeholder engagement, choice and self-determination, consumer protection and rights, and  quality measurement, data collection, and research. The PCPID 2012 Report to the President also recommends that states and the federal government engage disability stakeholders in the design, implementation, and oversight of MLTSS program to ensure consumer protections.

In addition to the full report, PCPID members developed an adapted summary of the report intended to be more understandable for self-advocates, family members, or others new to the subject.

The full and summary reports are available on the Administration for Community Living's website at the following links: 

AUCD and The Arc's Health Meet project also held a webinar on the report, which has been archived at the following link.
