Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS)
HealthChoice Illinois plans also serve seniors and people with disabilities who get full Medicare and Medicaid benefits and live in a nursing home or long term care facility, or who get home-based waiver services.
The enrollment packet for LTSS customers will include:
- An LTSS enrollment letter. The letter lists your HealthChoice Illinois health plan for your long term care or home-based waiver services, and your enrollment start date.
- A report card with tips on choosing a health plan.
- A brochure explaining how to enroll in an LTSS health plan.
- A comparison chart that lists all your health plan choices and extra benefits.
After you are enrolled, you can change your health plan one time each year during open enrollment. About two months before your open enrollment period, we will send you the latest plan report card and an LTSS open enrollment letter.
LTSS customers who choose to opt out of (decide not to enroll in) the Medicare-Medicaid Alignment Initiative (MMAI) are required to enroll in a HealthChoice Illinois plan for their long term care or home-based waiver services only. LTSS customers can choose to re-enroll with MMAI at any time.
