Medicaid LTSS and HCBS: Medicaid is the primary payer across the nation for LTSS. Medicaid allows for the coverage of these services through several vehicles and over a continuum of settings, ranging from institutional care to community-based LTSS.
Medicaid beneficiaries are also eligible to receive HCBS in their own home or community rather than institutions. These programs serve a variety of targeted population groups, such as older adults, people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and/or mental illnesses.
