New MLTSS Association Report Outlines Opportunities for MCOs to Support the Direct Care Workforce

WASHINGTONSept. 20, 2023PRLog — A new report from the National MLTSS Health Plan Association (MLTSS Association) provides a novel framework for how states with managed long-term services and supports (MLTSS) programs and the federal government can leverage the role of MLTSS managed care organizations (MCOs) to bolster the direct care workforce (DCW).

Despite increased demand for long-term services and supports (LTSS), a shortage of direct care workers remains a significant challenge for individuals needing LTSS, states, MCOs, providers, and workers themselves. Between 2020 and 2030, 7.9 million new and existing direct care positions will need to be filled. As a result, individuals with disabilities are waiting longer, receiving lower quality services, and relying more on informal caregivers for the supports they need.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the Direct Care Workforce shortage and illuminated existing barriers to recruitment and retention, including low wages and limited career development opportunities,” said MLTSS Association Board Chair Chris Palmieri, President and CEO of Commonwealth Care Alliance. “Given the enormity and urgency of this crisis, the message was clear at last year’s MLTSS Leadership Summit – the Association must lead the conversation and create policy solutions to address these workforce challenges.”

In response, in January 2023, the MLTSS Association launched a DCW Workgroup with member health plans charged with offering a unique MCO lens on opportunities to address the direct care worker shortage, including how MCOs can be effective partners in designing and implementing solutions. In its new report, titled “Strengthening the Direct Care Workforce: A Framework for Leveraging the Role of MLTSS MCOs to Address the Workforce Crisis,” the workgroup identifies emerging promising practices for MLTSS MCOs and providers to optimize the direct care workforce, as well as policy solutions for states and the federal government to facilitate and scale these practices more broadly.

“MCOs are directly connected to their established Provider Networks and have many assets—whether it’s data, thought leadership, and/or financial—to contribute, making them well-positioned to strengthen broader efforts at the local, state, and federal levels,” noted DCW Workgroup Co-Chair Rachel Turner Chinetti of Elevance Health. “This is most effective when done in collaboration with other MCOs. It is critical that MCOs step up to take action and share responsibility with other stakeholders to collectively offer new and innovative solutions on how to support the direct care workforce.”

The Association’s framework includes five key domains for policy solutions: Recruitment, Retention, Data Collection, Workforce Alternatives, and Elevating the Social Value of DCW’s Impact, with informal caregivers, technology, and flexible funding models braided across all domains. The report also outlines eight key principles underpinning the framework to ensure successful implementation: Collaboration & Shared Responsibility; Alignment with Local, State, and Federal Initiatives; Centering the DCW Voice; Equity; Person-Centered Planning; Informal Caregivers; Technology; and Flexible Funding Models.

“I commend the MLTSS Association for its leadership and vision in developing this comprehensive framework for how MCOs can have a meaningful impact on strengthening the direct care workforce, including workforce alternatives that value and prioritize opportunities for independence and supports that help to empower independence in the lives of those we serve,” remarked Patti Killingsworth, former Chief of LTSS at TennCare and current Chief Strategy Officer at Carebridge Health. “It is significant to see a health plan association come forward with a call to action for MCOs to invest in and collaborate on workforce solutions in partnership with states and providers. I strongly urge all relevant groups, particularly state LTSS leaders, to review the rich information and actionable solutions outlined in this report.”

HOPE fills the Seaside Heights boardwalk for the tenth straight year

HOPE Sheds Light’s annual Celebration of HOPE walk provides hope and support to families at the Jersey Shore that are impacted by substance use disorder.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J.Sept. 20, 2023PRLog — A decade later and hope is stronger than ever. The 10th Annual Celebration of HOPE Walk, hosted by HOPE Sheds Light (HSL), brought nearly 2,000 individuals and families to the Seaside Heights Boardwalk on September 9th to learn about substance use disorder, celebrate recovery and provide hope to those affected.

The day was filled with balloon art, face painting, vendor displays, musical interludes, inspirational stories and lots of love for those who were lost from substance use disorder and those in recovery. The day’s top fundraising teams were Grateful Dan in first place and Team FWH/Trident in second.

The walk was organized by Pamela Capaci, CEO of HSL, Nancy Moore, Family Services Coordinator of HSL, and Emily Hendricks, Program Director of HSL.

“Those impacted by substance use disorder typically don’t know where to turn for help,” said Moore. “HOPE Sheds light offers these individuals a community to lean on. We are stronger together than we could ever be walking this journey alone.”

After a few opening words from HSL Co-founder Steve Willis, a host of dignitaries and guest speakers who have been impacted by addiction took the stage. Dignitaries included: Sgt. Melissa Rose of the Ocean County Prosecutors Office and Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Lindsay Ashwal.

Hendricks had the honor of cutting the start ribbon to kick of the walk. “This was such a special moment that I will treasure forever,” she said. “I walked to show that anyone can stop using, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live with the help of each other. Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate this special day with us.”

HSL was started after Ron Rosetto lost his son, Marc to a hard-fought battle against substance abuse disorder. When the Rosetto family was going through this very difficult time, they struggled to find the help they so desperately needed. Since the family and friends of those with addiction problems often feel isolated, ashamed, overwhelmed and hopeless, Ron, alongside friends Stephen Willis and Arvo Prima, whose sons also were battling addiction at the time, founded HSL. Shortly after, Stephen’s son, Mark lost his battle with the disease of addiction. A few years later, Arvo’s son, Paavo lost his fight with the disease.

Ron, Stephen and Arvo have since dedicated their lives to keeping their sons’ legacy alive by helping others find the courage to face addiction and find recovery.

During the event, the three co-founder shared their personal stories. “Addiction is a disease that consumes everyone close to the person suffering. We all need help, and we all need each other for support to recover. God speaks through people,” noted Prima. “This organization has changed my life in many wonderful ways because it continues to teach and keep me connected to my recovery and my family’s well-being,” stated Willis. “We are here to not only honor the people we lost, but to honor the people standing here today in recovery. Today we celebrate life,” proclaimed Rosetto.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, HSL continues to grow and evolve, raising awareness and educating individuals, families and the community about the impact of substance use disorder in Ocean and Monmouth Counties and beyond. Through peer-to-peer coaching and support groups, wellness programs and educational programs for the whole family, HSL strives to reduce stigma in order to make way for new outcomes.

Capaci offered her appreciation to the entire community, as well as the HSL team for their unwavering support through the years. “We started out as a grassroots effort, and today, ten years later, we stand firm on our mission driven decision to serve the community,” she said. “HOPE’s growth means that more and more people each day are being served with love and coached toward recovery. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
