The Department of Human Services is responsible for recipients in nursing homes and services for the elderly or chronically ill residing in their own home or at mid-level care.
With the implementation of House Bill 2 effective July 1, 2008 the counties are responsible for long-term care programs, Nursing Home Care (INC) and Home and Community Based Care (HCBC). The county pays 100% liability for the non-federal share of these two programs.
INC funds nursing home care for Medicaid-eligible recipients in private nursing homes as well as county nursing homes.
The elderly are encouraged to remain in their homes or in a setting less intense than a nursing home. Medicaid eligible elderly can opt to have services in their own homes through the HCBC program.
Feel free to call this department with any questions.
Ted Purdy, Coordinator
