Managed long term services and supports (MLTSS)

Some members are eligible for extra care. MLTSS helps seniors and people with disabilities live at home for as long as they can. The program provides and coordinates primary, acute, behavioral and long-term care. You can get these services in your home or assisted living center. You don’t need to live in a nursing home or other facility. To qualify, you must meet some state and plan criteria.

Understanding health insurance can be a challenge. Especially if it’s new to you. Or if it’s your first time enrolling. You and your family may be eligible for benefits without knowing it. The first step? See if you qualify. You can use the screening tool at NJ FamilyCare to get started.
