Long-Term Care Consultation Services help people make decisions about long-term care
Long-Term Care Consultation Services (LTCC) include a variety of services designed to help people make decisions about long-term care. Consultants help people and their families choose services that reflect their needs and preferences.
How does it work?
Services are provided locally. Each county has a team made up of at least one social worker and one public health nurse.
This team provides:
More than 70 percent of the people who receive these services are age 65 or older, but services are available to people of all ages with long-term or chronic care needs.
Each county receives an allocation through payments to the nursing facilities within the county to fund LTCC services. In addition, the county receives a fee for in-person assessments for all persons under 65, and for transition assistance provided to all persons eligible for Medical Assistance. No person or their family can be charged for an initial assessment and support planning visit, whether provided in the community to avoid nursing facility admission or provided as transition assistance to return to the community.
