Colorado's LTSS Assessment and Support Plan

The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, in collaboration with stakeholders, has developed new processes for eligibility determinations, needs assessments, and support planning for all individuals seeking or receiving long-term services and supports (LTSS).   The new processes will be person-centered, enhance self-direction, and facilitate greater coordination of services, as well as be equally applicable to adults with disabilities and children. The new process will be automated in a new case management IT solution, Aerial. The implementation of the new LTSS Assessment and Support Plan and Aerial is scheduled to begin by June 2021.
