Ohio Medicaid, in partnership with the Ohio Department of Aging, will implement a new Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) program and begin enrolling individuals receiving community and facility-based long-term services and supports in managed care on July 1, 2018. Individuals dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare who are not participating in the MyCare Ohio program will also be enrolled in managed care, and participants in the Medicaid Buy-In program for workers with disabilities will no longer be excluded.
This move will allow Ohio Medicaid to provide the benefits of care coordination to Medicaid enrollees who have the most complex needs and improve quality of care to achieve better health outcomes.
Stakeholder engagement will be an important part of the process as we make key decisions about the MLTSS program. If you are interested in joining the MLTSS stakeholder group or another work group, have questions about the MLTSS program, or have any other feedback please contact MLTSS@medicaid.ohio.gov.

Ohio MLTSS Draft Implementation Timeline
In order to prevent a conflict of interest that may prohibit potential applicants from bidding on the future MLTSS procurement opportunity, we are asking that potential applicants exclude themselves from stakeholder group meetings where MLTSS design will be discussed.
