The Home Care Services Program (HCSP) offers home care services to Medicaid-eligible individuals through the CASA program.
The program is for people who are not eligible for or enrolled in a Medicaid Managed Care Plan or Managed Long Term Care Plan.
Program staff will:
- Determine your eligibility for long term care Medicaid coverage
- Determine the appropriate care
- Develop a service plan if you are medically eligible
Based on your service plan, you have access to:
- Home attendants
HCSP also provides Medicaid eligibility and information about Assisted Living Program (ALP) services that are administered by New York State.
New York City provides home care assistance to people who are Medicaid-eligible, and who are not required to enroll in a Managed Care or Managed Long Term Care plan.
Medicaid Specialists will determine your eligibility for Medicaid. An Independent Assessor (IA) contracted by the New York State Department of Health will review your medical needs and determine the appropriate care. Cases referred from the IA to HCSP will be reviewed and a service plan will be developed. A case manager will be assigned to assist you with the service plan development process.
