Medicaid Program in Farmington Hills

Seniors in Farmington Hills who meet income and asset guidelines may receive free or low-cost healthcare coverage through the Michigan Medicaid program.

Home Help, which is part of the regular Medicaid program, covers homemaker services, including housekeeping, meal preparation and non-emergency transportation services. Eligible seniors who reside in an assisted living facility may have their care covered through a Medicaid waiver program, which is outlined below.   

To be eligible for Medicaid, applicants must be at least 65 years old, U.S. citizens and permanent residents of Michigan. As of 2019, applicants may have an income of up to $1,041 per month and up to $2,000 in countable assets. Married applicants may have a combined income of $1,409 per month and up to $3,000 in countable assets. 

Medicaid is an entitlement program, meaning that all eligible applicants are guaranteed to receive services. To learn more about Michigan Medicaid, seniors may contact their closest Department of Human Services office at (248) 262-6400.
