2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

This presentation will address the question of whether managed long-term services and supports can create better access to supports and better inclusion and employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities than traditional long-term services and supports programs. Speakers from Tennessee will reflect on the state's experience with managed long-term services and supports for people with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities. Presenters will discuss what they have learned about how to use managed care as a tool to advance equity, opportunity and inclusion and to create more accountability for the use of public funds to advance the civil and human rights of people with disabilities.
