Advocating for Improved Consumer Protections in Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

For the past two years, Justice in Aging has provided ongoing assistance to advocates in Florida, Kansas and New Jersey as their states have implemented Medicaid managed care for long-term services and supports (LTSS).
