Medicaid and HCBS
All states provide some kind of long-term care for certain people, including the elderly, who live at home and who would require nursing home care if they didn’t receive these services. These programs aren’t technically part of Medicaid but are funded by Medicaid through waivers of normal Medicaid rules, which is how they get their designation as Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) “waiver” programs. To see if you qualify for a HCBS program contact your Case Worker to determine your eligibility.
