Medicaid

Adult Medicaid is for eligible individuals who are aged, blind or disabled.

Community Programs
CAP-MR (Community Alternatives Program for the Mentally Retarded) and CPA-DA (Community Alternative Program for Disabled Adults) prevent potential individuals from having to go into long term care by being able to receive the same type of care at home without having to pay their cost of care.

State/County Special Assistance Programs
Assistance is available for individuals needing nursing home care under the Medicaid Program or Adult Care home care through the State/County Special Assistance Program. The State/County Special Assistance Program is the only cash aid program administered by the Adult Medicaid Unit. In addition to the regular Medicaid Programs, the unit administers the limited programs which are referred to as MQB (Medicaid Qualified Beneficiaries). These programs are available to individuals who have excess income/reserves for regular Medicaid.
