Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS)
At Carolina Complete Health, we are here to support you with Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS). It is a Medicaid program for those who need a more hands-on, flexible, and custom care plan. With LTSS, we are giving our members more control over their health and the care they receive.
Every year, millions of Medicaid enrollees of all ages use and rely on LTSS, from supported employment to personal care services.

Here are some of the ways LTSS takes care of members:
Care managers help members manage and create their care plan and are available to everyone enrolled in LTSS. They are also available to help answer any questions or concerns members might have about their benefits.
