New MLTSS Assessment and Care Planning Quality Measures: Implementation Issues for States and Integrated Care Plans

Integrated Care Resource Center
March 2019

This webinar describes four new quality measures specifically designed for use by Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) plans, which address comprehensive assessments, comprehensive care plans, shared care plans with primary care practitioners, and reassessments and care plans after an inpatient discharge. Speakers from Mathematica, NCQA, and a health plan: (1) explain how these measures differ from related measures reported by Medicare Advantage SNPs and Medicare-Medicaid Plans; (2) discuss issues that state Medicaid agencies may consider in deciding whether to require contracted health plans that operate integrated care programs and MLTSS stand-alone programs to report the measures; and (3) share health plan strategies for using the measures for quality improvement and making it easier to collect the data needed to construct and report the measures accurately.
