Using Medicaid as a Resource for Home Repair and Modification
Most states offer Medicaid programs that cover home modifications to enable elderly and/or disabled individuals to remain living at home. These Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) and Managed Care programs cover the cost of minor home repairs and modifications like wheelchair ramps, HVAC, flooring and grab bars and railings. This presentation will provide an overview of Medicaid, share how to use Medicaid HCBS waivers as a resource for home repair and modification, and show your organization how to access and navigate these programs in your state.
Who should consider attending:
- program staff
- executive staff
- client services staff
