Medicaid pays for medical care and services for needy families and individuals who qualify under the applicable income and asset rules. 

Individuals who qualify and whose medical costs are not completely covered by Medicare and/or private health insurance may be assisted with a broad range of service costs such as home aide service and costs for custodial care in a skilled nursing facility. 

Couples facing long-term custodial care costs for one spouse only should seek informed advice about their medical assistance eligibility before making financial decisions.

Our NY CONNECTS staff are available to answer any questions regarding Medicaid and can assist with the planning and application process for both Community and Nursing Home Medicaid.
