Stakeholder Advisory Committee
Partners’ Long-Term Services and Supports Stakeholder Advisory Committee provides stakeholder input and advice about LTSS covered under NC Medicaid Direct and BH I/DD Tailored Plan contracts, including care provided in the home, in community-based settings or in facilities such as nursing homes.
 
The committee meets all requirements in 42 C.F.R. § 438.110.
 
The LTSS Stakeholder Advisory Committee reviews and provides feedback on relevant Partners reports. The committee advises on issues related to member experience and quality of care.

Examples of LTSS are:

  • Home and Community Based Services that allow NC Innovations Waiver recipients to live in the community.
  • Intermediate Care Facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
  • Personal Care Services (PCS) for those who need help with eating, getting dressed, bathing, going to the bathroom and getting around.
  • Home Health Services for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
  • Hospice-coordinated services for terminally ill individuals and their families/caregivers.
  • Private Duty Nursing services for medically fragile individuals.
