Nursing Home Care

Nursing Home Care is provided as a part of the standard Medicaid benefit package under Long Term Care. To determine eligibility for this program a MCDHS Case Manager will meet with the client and family to complete a functional assessment. Assessments can be completed in the home, an Assisted Living Facility, or in a Nursing Facility. The assessment process will determine whether an individual meets the functional requirements and the duration of need for skilled and maintenance requirements under the Long Term Care guidelines.
