Most people receiving long-term care assistance live at home and are not in a nursing home. They are able to reside in their home environment because of the care that they are receiving from their family members and/or from professional medical services, such as Home Health Care.
Home Health Care Services can include skilled nursing, therapy services, or home health aides, including medication management, bathing assistance, or personal care services like meal preparation or cleaning.
LTCMC Medicaid plans offer Home Health Services as part of their benefit package. So if you are a participant in a LTCMC plan, then you are eligible to receive assistance from skilled nurses, home health aides, or personal care attendants in your home, as long as your doctor or LTCMC care coordinator has authorized for those services and has deemed the treatment as medically necessary.
