A Quick Guide to Improving Medicaid Coverage for Supportive Housing Services

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) has published two reports on using Medicaid in supportive housing: Primer on Using Medicaid for People Experiencing Chronic Homelessness and Tenants in Permanent Supportive Housing, and Medicaid and Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless Individuals: Emerging Practices from the Field.

This Quick Guide, co-authored by CSH and the US Interagency Council on Homelessness is designed to provide a brief overview of information in these reports and other resources to help states, community health centers, behavioral health clinics, and supportive housing providers use Medicaid more strategically to serve people who are highly vulnerable and who need supportive housing.
