The Federal Medicaid Agency (CMS) approved to a big change in how the New York State Medicaid Program determines the need for and delivery of personal care services.  Personal care services are broken down into both "home attendant" services and "housekeeping" services.  Basically, Medicaid will pay a fixed monthly fee to a home care agency to provide Medicaid home care services.

What does this mean for the average Medicaid applicant/recipient?
The Medicaid home care program is now like an HMO - also know as a capitated medical program.  Under the Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) model, all MLTC approved home care agencies will be paid a fix dollar each month to provide care for each Medicaid covered particpants.  Managed Long Term Care Plans (MLTC Plan) will provide all home care services needs.  New applicants will be asked to select an MLTC Plan as their services provided at the time of application.  The new program name will be "New York Medicaid Choice".  There are no changes to the basic income and assets rules for establishing Medicaid eligibility.
