Medicaid Home Care (Managed Long Term Care-MLTC)
Medicaid patients qualify for home care if they are enrolled in a Medicaid Managed Long Term Care Plan and have been assessed by Medicaid nurse who has approved a specific number of home care hours per week.
Caring Professionals will help a family choose a Medicaid Long Term Care Plan (MLTC) and will facilitate the process of arranging for the Medicaid nurse to come make the assessment. The intake specialist will provide ongoing support, explain which papers need to be signed, submit paperwork, and remind the family when the Medicaid nurse assessment visit will occur. From the initial call to enrollment to the start of services, s/he will clarify things for you and be your ongoing contact person.
If the senior or disabled patient is not yet on Medicaid and may qualify, our intake specialists will direct the family to a Medicaid enrollment company. The company’s representative will explain how one qualifies for Medicaid, provide the necessary documents and will submit the application to Medicaid. Once the application has been accepted, Caring Professionals intake staff will take it from there to assure a smooth transition to enrollment in a Medicaid Long Term Care Plan (MLTC), facilitate the process of the Medicaid nurse assessment, and enable the start of a home health aide to provide care in the home.
Medicaid determines the number of weekly hours of home care by a home health aide for the patient, not Caring Professionals.
