HHS Releases New Resources on Using Medicaid to Cover Services for People in Permanent Supportive Housing

Monday, October 13, 2014

On October 10, 2014, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) released two new reports: a Primer on "Using Medicaid for People Experiencing Chronic Homelessness and Tenants of Permanent Supportive Housing", and a companion document, "Medicaid and Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless Individuals: Emerging Practices from the Field."

The reports are intended to serve as tools for states and communities that are working to expand services and supports for people in permanent supportive housing (PSH). While the reports focus on services for people experiencing chronic homelessness, the options highlighted in the Primer can be used by states to increase the role of Medicaid in providing supportive services to any individuals living in PSH.
