In New Hampshire, the cost of bringing care into your home, care within a licensed Assisted Living Program or care within a Nursing Home Facility may be covered by Medicaid for those that financially and medically qualify. The Home and Community-Based Care program, also known as Choices for Independence (HCBC-CFI) is the Medicaid Program that offers a variety of home and community-based services, including care within a licensed Assisted Living Program, that a chronically ill elderly individual may need in order to prevent Nursing Home.
The 2016 financial eligibility guidelines for The Home and Community-Based Care program (HCBC-CFI) limits remain unchanged from 2015 and are a gross monthly income of $2199.00 or below and no more than $2500.00 worth of assets per applicant. In addition to financial eligibility, applicants must meet medical eligibility. “Opening New Doors Senior Living Placement Services is able to direct families to In-Home Care agencies and Assisted Living Programs that accept the Choices for Independence benefit. Although we do not assist with completing the Medicaid Forms, we can direct you to state agencies that provide free assistance with completing the paperwork or Eldercare Attorneys who are able to efficiently file the paperwork on your behalf.
