Financial Criteria


CAP/DA is intended for individuals who have very limited financial resources.  They must be eligible for Medicaid.  Medicaid eligibility for CAP/DA differs from regular Medicaid because the income and assets of the potential participant are counted, not the income of the family or spouse.




Some of the services provided by CAP/DA include:


·         More extensive in-home care

·         Adult Day Health

·         Nutritional Supplements

·         Incontinence Products

·         Case Management

·         Personal Emergency Response Services

·         Any regular Medicaid services that the person is entitled to




CAP/DA cannot provide 24 hour care for someone who requires it.  Family and or/friend support is a requirement to participate in the program. All of the services that Medicaid provides must be within a cost limit.  There is a waiting list for CAP/DA and services cannot be started right away.  For individuals with incomes exceeding the Medicaid limit, there may be significant financial cost to participate in CAP/DA.
