Long-Term Services & Supports: A Gathering of Tribal Leaders


Long-Term Services & Supports: A Gathering of Tribal Leaders

Several tribal leaders gathered recently to discuss how Native communities are serving elders and people with disabilities in ways that are as varied as the communities themselves. A video of the tribal leaders' discussion about LTSS is now available. The video is part of a larger effort by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide assistance to American Indian and Alaska Native leaders as they design culturally relevant LTSS programs in their communities. The CMS LTSS Technical Assistance Center was created especially for tribes. The online center pulls LTSS resources together in one place and offers a roadmap to guide tribes along the way.
