Medicaid Long-Term Care Services

 

 

 

 

Louisiana's Medicaid Program provides payment for special long-term care support services, as well as full Medicaid health coverage, to eligible people who, because of their medical conditions, require assistance with activities of daily living (for example, eating, bathing, dressing, grooming, and transferring). Long-term care supports may be provided either in a facility or in an individual's own home or in the community. 

 

Louisiana's Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS), or Medicaid waiver programs, include programs administered by both the Office of Aging and Adult Services and the Office for Citizens with Developmental Disabilities.

HCBS programs administered by the Office of Aging and Adult Services include:

Individuals who are Medicaid eligible can now receive Personal Care Services in their homes even without being in one of the waiver service programs. Contact the LDH Office of Aging & Adult Services to inquire about these services.
