Bookmark and Share

This paper provides an overview of states’ efforts to finance, through Medicaid, the services that supportive housing residents need to achieve both housing and health stability. As evidence continues to establish supportive housing as an intervention that stabilizes people with chronic illnesses and/or behavioral health conditions and reduces health system costs, states are exploring ways to better utilize health care financing for the services that supportive housing residents need. This paper summarizes how Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, the City of Philadelphia, Rhode Island, Texas and Washington are exploring ways to add housing services as Medicaid reimbursable services for supportive housing populations.
