One Care Initiative Hosting Webinar on Independent LTS Coordinators

September 15, 2014

The One Care demonstration project that coordinates and combines services for dually eligible individuals in Massachusetts hosts periodic webinars to educate the One Care Plans as well as service providers to help the program be successful.

The latest in that series is a free webinar on the role of the Long Term Services and Supports Coordinator, which will take place on Thursday, September 18th from noon to 1:00pm. During this webinar, the One Care Learning Team will discuss making referrals to Independent Living and Long-Term Services (LTS) and Supports Coordinators, ways to explain this role to One Care enrollees, and the benefits of engaging LTS Coordinators on Interdisciplinary Care Teams. An overview of the vision of MassHealth for the role of LTS Coordinator will be outlined and highlighted with examples of how LTS Coordinators are working with enrollees and interdisciplinary care teams.

Check out this video for an overview of the Independent Living LTSS Coordinator role and meet two of the webinar presenters.
