MLTC Tip Sheets | June 2017

The Workgroup for People with Medicare and Medicaid, a project of the Coalition to Protect the Rights of New York’s Dually Eligible (CPRNYDE), created tip sheets about Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) that are written in easy-to-understand language.  These educational materials were written alongside people who are covered by MLTC and their caregivers, as well as individuals who may need MLTC in the near future.  The members of the Workgroup assert that aspects of MLTC are not transparent enough and people need to learn more about their rights in simple language.  The Workgroup is comprised of New Yorkers with Medicare, Medicaid, and long-term care needs as well as their caregivers.

The three tip sheets are on who is eligible for MLTC, how to enroll, and on the rights of people on MLTC.

The Workgroup hopes these tip sheets help those who may be confused, concerned, or unaware of different aspects of MLTC, and that they help individuals better understand how to enroll in the MLTC plan that is best for them, as well as their rights once they are enrolled in a plan.
