At the beginning of 2013, 16 states had Medicaid managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) plans, with mandatory or voluntary enrollment. Target populations varied by state.

Aging Commissions in the States: Oversight vs. Advisory

States endow Commissions on Aging Services with different responsibilities. States that have Commissions with more of an oversight nature advise states about aging issues and are responsible for working with legislators, advocating for seniors, and evaluating needs and services. More advisory Commissions offer guidance in identifying and researching aging issues. Results of a ADvancing States survey found that 20 states have Commissions in place, 5 with oversight capacity, and 15 that are more advisory.
