MS Balancing Incentives Program

Mississippi

“The Balancing Incentive Program authorizes grants to States to increase access to non-institutional long-term services and supports (LTSS) … [to] transform their long-term care systems by:

  • lowering costs through improved systems performance & efficiency
  • creating tools to help consumers with care planning & assessment [and]
  • improving quality measurement & oversight.

It “also provides new ways to serve more people in home and community-based settings, in keeping with the integration mandate of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as required by the Olmstead decision.”
