Are you in need of home care services but are afraid to get the necessary care because of cost! Are you aware that you may be able to access the Medicaid Community Based Home Care Program (Medicaid Home Care) for these services?
Medicaid Home Care – The Basics
Medicaid is a major provider of home care services in New York State through the personal care aide program. A Medicaid application is often triggered by the need for home care by a person who is no longer able to function independently. He or she needs assistance with activities of daily living.
Under the Medicaid Home Care Program, personal care aides provide unskilled services under the supervision of nurses. Medicaid provides these services via home care agencies which ultimately provide the licensed personal care aides.
