Long Term Services and Support
The goal of the Long Term Services and Support (LTSS) Unit of Nevada Medicaid is to support those individuals who need ongoing care due to age, physical or intellectual disability or chronic illness. Comprehensive services are delivered both institutionally and in home and community based (HCB) settings depending upon the needs and preferences of the individual.
Institutional services include Skilled Nursing Facilities and Intermediate Care Facilities for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities.
HCB services range from in-home skilled nursing to home-delivered meals and community supports such as Adult Day Health Care. There are three broad areas within which a variety of programs are available through LTSS:
- Facilities Services Unit
- Home Care Unit
- Home and Community Based Services
