Chronic v. Community Medicaid

In New York, Medicaid can be a pay source whether you require care in your home or care in a Nursing Facility. The program which can help cover the cost of care in the home is referred to as Community Medicaid and the program which can pay for all or part of the cost of a Nursing Home is called Chronic Medicaid. Because Medicaid is a needs based program, certain income and asset requirements apply.
