URAC Health Plan Accreditation with Long-Term Services and Supports
URAC now offers a Health Plan Long-term Services and Supports (LTSS) module that health plans can use to demonstrate their commitment to addressing the needs of their LTSS patients in an effective and resource-efficient manner.
LTSS encompasses the broad range of paid and unpaid medical and personal care assistance that health plan members may need – for several weeks, months, or years – when they experience difficulty completing self-care tasks as a result of aging, chronic illness, or disability.
