These principles describe our desire to make sure people with disabilities have the medical care, medical services, long-term services and supports they need.
These principles are presented to guide Disability Rights California’s participation in the Master Plan for Aging and related program and policy development.
Long-term services and supports (LTSS) refer to the daily living supports that people with disabilities and older adults need. LTSS includes home and community-based services (HCBS), which are the overwhelming preference of service delivery for the disability community and older adults. Most LTSS is funded through Medicaid, called Medi-Cal in California. LTSS includes In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), Medicaid Home and Community Based Services Waivers (Waivers), Community Based Adult Services (CBAS), and institutional settings such as nursing facilities.
