2019 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together our constituents to share resources and success stories, learn about field-driven best practices, and network within a community engaged in shared values. The Conference is attended by passionate leaders, experts, and advocates from every corner of the disability community. Conference attendees are influential in their fields and communities, and play an important role in the provision of services and supports for the millions of individuals and organizations around the world; and include professors and researchers from leading institutions; those involved in local, state, and federal governments and public policy; special and general educators, and school administrators; self-advocates, adult service providers; students, family members, and many others.  This year’s conference theme, Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities, reminds us that equity, opportunity, and inclusion relies on the input of broad perspectives and experiences.

Between 2011 and 2016, the number of states operating a Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) program dramatically expanded, from 12 to 22. Today, over half the country delivers long term services and supports, including home and community-based services, within a MLTSS framework. Though people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) have historically been excluded from MLTSS frameworks, this has begun to change with recent implementations in Iowa and Kansas including people with I/DD in the same managed care framework as seniors and people with physical disabilities. This session will provide a comparative perspective on MLTSS programs across the country and discuss one longstanding best practice model, Wisconsin's FamilyCare program, hearing from representatives from both state government and FamilyCare's largest MCO, Inclusa. Particular emphasis will be given to ensuring that people with disabilities, including people with I/DD, are able to access services in the most integrated setting. How can states and advocates work to ensure that MLTSS results in increased access to competitive integrated employment and community inclusion? What safeguards can be put in place to protect people with significant disabilities from medicalization or reduction in service quality? This session will help prepare advocates to engage on some of the most important policy issues facing the disability community today.
