The NYS Medicaid State Plan provides low-cost or free medical services to low-income seniors in Westchester County and the rest of the state. Medicaid can help pay for long-term care, home health assistance and an assisted living facility. It also provides seniors with the medical equipment, transportation, inpatient and outpatient hospital services, physician services and laboratory and X-ray services.
To be eligible for Medicaid, applicants must be age 65 or older, a resident of the state of New York and a U.S. citizen (or have satisfactory immigration status).
To meet financial requirements:
Seniors whose income exceeds the set limits may still be eligible for the Medicaid Excess Income program, also known as the spend-down or surplus-income program. This program pays for medical bills once a senior’s monthly out-of-pocket spending reaches a specific threshold.
The NY Assisted Living Program (ALP) is a waiver that pays for services of a licensed assisted living residence for individuals who require care but don’t need the all-inclusive services of a nursing home. To be eligible for this waiver, individuals must be age 21 and over, have a degree of self-mobility to function in an assisted living environment and meet the income limits of Medicaid recipients. Services paid by ALP include room and board, skilled nursing, medical equipment, adult day care, occupational and physical therapy and home health services. This program is open to Medicaid-eligible and ineligible individuals.
The ALP is regulated by the State Department of Health and has limited enrollment. To apply for Medicaid, call (855) 355-5777, apply online or visit the local office in your area.
The Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program
The Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) helps individuals who can no longer perform everyday tasks due to a chronic illness, injury, disability or naturally aging. Long-term care can be provided at home, adult day care or in assisted living facilities. The FLTCIP covers Federal and U.S. Postal Service employees and annuitants, active and retired members of the uniformed services, and their qualified relatives. This program reimburses 100 percent of charges incurred for services, including assisted living, home and adult day care and formal and informal caregiver services. FLTCIP has four prepackaged and customized plans to choose from depending on your long-term care plans.
For more information, call (800) 582-3337 or apply online.
Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) is intended for seniors who wish to stay at home instead of an institutionalized setting. The program also pays for services in a nursing facility when an individual can no longer safely remain at home.
Residents at assisted living facilities can use the PACE program. It doesn’t contribute toward room and board fees, but it does provide services that would otherwise be an added expense. To qualify, participants must be at least 55 years old, require skilled nursing and be enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. For those who don’t have Medicare or Medicaid, seniors and their family members can pay for PACE privately. Benefits are determined on a case-by-case basis and are specified only for medical and care services.
For more information on the Westchester County PACE program, call (833) 252-2737.
