“This study finds that managed care can lead the way in advancing person- and family-centered care,” and highlights promising practices from TennCare, South Carolina Healthy Connections Prime, United Healthcare and the Cal MediConnect Dementia Project. “Although family caregiver supports are still uncommon in managed Long Term Services and Support (LTSS), managed care contracts have the power to standardize the person- and family-centered approach that can lead to better care for members and their families.”

Thanks for this work, AARP.
