Meeting Medicaid/ALTCS medical

People think that because they cannot cook or clean their house they need Medicaid assistance to pay for that care.  ALTCS (AZ Medicaid program) is not for that.  ALTCS is for people that fall under this criteria:

What is medical eligibility? This means that the person applying for Medicaid/ALTCS has to be at nursing home level of care requiring assistance with Activities of Daily Living such as bathing, dressing, getting in & out of bed/chair/toilet, etc. A person does not have to be in a nursing home to meet this criteria.

Having  Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s or a serious condition that affects activities of daily living will help qualify a person vs someone that does not have these conditions.

The doctor has to have his or her medical records with these conditions too.  If a doctor says, “patient needs supervisor care” that is a big NO for ALTCS.
