Long-term services and supports: A comprehensive process to inform the development of Michigan’s statewide LTSS strategic plan
In 2019, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) engaged in preliminary preparation for strategic planning activities around long-term services and supports (LTSS). MDHHS has now asked CHRT to facilitate a comprehensive process to inform a statewide LTSS strategic plan.
In Phase I, CHRT will review MDHHS work to date and interview key staff, as needed. CHRT will then conduct an environmental scan of federal policy and funding changes, both planned and existing, as well as examples of how states are applying these federal changes. CHRT will review best practices on equity initiatives and key LTSS options, including developing a white paper on LTSS options. CHRT will also conduct a series of internal and external key informant interviews, and complete a literature review on home- and community-based services, with high-level recommendations for the state. CHRT will provide MDHHS with an interim summary report in the fall of 2021.
