Abstract
Chronic illness combined with functionalimpairment often results in an increased need for medical care and supportive long-term care (LTC) services. Navigating the health care system is challenging and complex, and even more so for patients with complex needs. Traditional fee-for-service care does not support and facilitate coordi-nation and collaboration between providers and service settings. In New York State,managed LTC, a model of coordinated care for the chronically ill, endeavors to provide a bridge between primary, acute, home and community-based, and institutional LTC services for a medically complex and func-tionally frail nursing home eligible population.
