Promoting Integrated Employment: Lessons Learned


Medicaid is the single largest source of health care financing for low-income people with disabilities, a population that increasingly receives long-term services and supports (LTSS) in community-based set-tings instead of in institutions.1 Growth in the funding of community-based services and the evolution of federal policies and initiatives that emphasize community integration and employment for individuals with disabilities have been driving forces behind many states’ efforts to transform their service systems to make integrated employment the preferred service outcome for individuals with IDDs.
