Medicaid Program

Nicholas Community Action Partnership

Medicaid Personal Care Program

The Nicholas Community Action Partnership’s Medicaid Program provides services to people age 18 and over who are eligible for Medicaid and determined by a physician to be in need of services because of physical impairment. Individuals must need assistance with personal care activities such as grooming and hygiene. If personal care is needed then assistance with other activities such as grocery shopping and errands, housework, budget management and transportation to doctor appointments can be provided. Each case is assessed and supervised by an RN, as ordered by the client’s physician.
