SYNERGY HomeCare of NW Atlanta is proud to announce that we have been APPROVED as a Medicaid (SOURCE & CCSP) Personal Support Service Provider!
The Community Care Services Program (CCSP) helps Medicaid-eligible people who are elderly and/or functionally impaired to continue living in their homes and communities. CCSP offers community-based care as an alternative to nursing home placement. The Division of Aging Services, a division of the Department of Human Resources, administers CCSP.
The eligibility criteria for CCSP include the following:
Persons who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and are eligible for medical assistance automatically meet financial eligibility for CCSP. 2015 SSI limits are $733/month for an individual and $1,100/month for a couple.
Persons who do not receive SSI may qualify for medical assistance under another Medicaid category. These participants may have to pay toward the cost of services. To qualify for CCSP a person may have a gross income of up to $2,199 per month or must set up a Qualified Income Trust if the income is over this amount.
A person’s monthly income determines how much they will pay towards the cost of services each month. The amount may be as high as all of the income over $733 per month for a single individual. However, the cost-share amount could be different for a married couple as the CCSP Medicaid-eligible person may potentially be able to divert some of his or her income to a legal spouse who is neither in CCSP nor in an institution. The Department of Family and Children Services will determine the exact monthly cost share.
A single person may have up to $2,000 in resources and in addition, may have up to $10,000 more if designated for burial (life insurance will count towards the burial amount). For a married couple, if a CCSP client has a spouse who is neither in CCSP nor an institution, the total combined assets of the individual and the spouse must be $121,220 or less. The CCSP client must transfer the assets in his or her name in excess of $2,000 to the community spouse within one year from the month Medicaid eligibility begins. If both persons in a couple are enrolled in CCSP and/or an institution, they may have only up to $4,000 in combined resources.
Medicaid Estate Recovery applies for individuals enrolled in CCSP who own their own home. Please call the intake unit at 404-463-3333 for more information or the Medicaid Estate Recovery office at 770-916-0328.
