Financial Assistance Programs in Frisco

Medicaid Program in Frisco

Seniors in Frisco who meet the income and asset requirements can get help paying for the cost of senior care through the federal Medicaid program. Texas Medicaid pays for basic and urgent medical care, as well as many prescription drugs and some residential care options. Medicaid is an entitlement program that accepts all eligible applicants, without any waiting periods or enrollment caps for coverage.

To be approved for Medicaid in Texas, seniors in Frisco must be citizens or legal residents of the United States and reside in the state. Some proof of citizenship and residency may be required during the sign-up period.

Financially, seniors who apply for Medicaid must meet income standards based on the federal poverty line with an upward adjustment to account for the cost of living in Texas. Seniors who live alone and apply for themselves can earn up to $24,037 a year from all sources combined, including wages from work, interest from investments and pension benefits. Married couples can earn up to $32,591 a year. The Texas Medicaid income limit rises by an additional $8,554 a year for every extra adult who lives in the household, regardless of whether or not they also apply for benefits. 

Seniors in Frisco have several options to apply for Medicaid. Applications may be submitted in person or by mail to a county Health and Human Services office. Seniors can also call for an application packet or apply online at the YourTexasBenefits website, where seniors can browse other free or low-cost health insurance plans.

Medicaid Waivers in Frisco


Seniors in Frisco who need help paying the costs associated with assisted living may be eligible for a STAR+PLUS waiver. This program pays the monthly cost of assisted living for seniors who have been approved for Medicaid and medically cleared for admission into a residential care facility, such as a skilled nursing home. Seniors who opt out of nursing home placement can get a STAR+PLUS waiver by applying directly through their Medicaid caseworker or through the benefits coordinator at a participating assisted living facility.

STAR+PLUS has eligibility requirements of its own, distinct from the more general Medicaid requirements. Seniors applying for STAR+PLUS must be aged 65 or over and earn less than $2,250 a month. Seniors must also report less than $2,000 in personal assets, not counting the first $572,000 in equity in a private home and the value of a single personal car. Intake workers consider assets owned over the course of a five-year look-back period, during which large gifts to friends and family must be counted as countable assets. 

STAR+PLUS offers more services for seniors who meet the income and asset requirements of STAR+PLUS, but who opt out of residential placement and choose to remain at home. Stay-at-home benefits include:

  • Caregiver assistance in the senior’s home
  • Approved home improvement work, including the installation of wheelchair ramps and guard rails
  • In-home supervision for seniors with dementia
  • Adult day care at home or in a local facility

Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)

Seniors who stay at home in Frisco can get local support to remain as independent as possible through the Texas HCBS program. This program issues vouchers to help pay the costs associated with several necessary services seniors need to remain safe and comfortable in their own homes. Applications can go through a Medicaid worker or the discharge planner at the residential care facility the senior is transitioning out of. HCBS benefits include:

  • Group or family-based residential care services, including live-in services
  • Respite care, which may be administered in the senior’s own home or at a Frisco-area facility
  • Nursing services, including wound care, from a visiting RN
  • Vouchers for public transportation, including city bus and rail service, disabled ride assistance and help booking non-emergency medical transportation in a wheelchair or gurney van
  • Home repairs related to a senior’s limited mobility, including ramps and rails

Texas Home Living (TxHmL)

Seniors in Frisco who have been diagnosed with certain mental or cognitive conditions can get help living as independently as possible through the TxHmL program. This program, which is administered by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services but which distributes funds to a number of Frisco-area nonprofit organizations, picks up some of the cost of:

  • Nursing care in the home
  • Respite care at home or in a local facility
  • Transportation costs within a reasonable radius in the northern Dallas-Ft. Worth area
  • Approved home modifications
  • Durable medical equipment and some adaptive aids, such as leg and back braces, wheelchairs and other mobility devices

Applications for TxHmL can be submitted by the benefits or discharge coordinator at the post-acute facility a senior is transitioning out of, as well as directly through the Department of Aging and Disability Services. To qualify, seniors must meet the residency and financial requirements of Medicaid, as well as present documentation of their age-related disability, such as Alzheimer’s disease or Huntington’s chorea.

Other Financial Assistance Programs in Frisco

Texas Support Services

Frisco seniors can get help with some daily tasks from a caregiver through Texas Support Services. This program funds the hiring of an in-home caregiver to assist seniors with laundry, personal care, food preparation and other normal household activities. Caregivers can also help seniors with tasks outside of the home, such as shopping and other reasonable errands. 

Eligible seniors must have some limiting physical or mental disability that makes normal household activities too difficult to do alone, including a diagnosed drug or alcohol dependency. Because program funds are distributed at the senior’s discretion, caregivers may be anyone the recipient chooses, such as spouses, family members and friends who meet program requirements.

To sign up for the program, seniors can reach out by phone or mail to the Dallas-area Area Agency on Aging, or they can apply directly through their Medicaid caseworker.

Community Care for the Aged/Disabled (CCAD)

Seniors in Frisco can get help remaining independent, or with covering some costs of residential care, through Community Care for the Aged/Disabled (CCAD). CCAD helps cover some costs associated with home care, as well as boarding costs for some residential care in the senior’s Frisco community. Seniors or their loved ones can apply for CCAD online or through the Dallas-area Aging and Disability Resource Center.

Community Attendant Services (CAS)

Frisco seniors who need assistance in their own homes, but who may not be able to afford the cost of an in-home caregiver, can apply for help through Community Attendant Services (CAS). CAS caregivers can assist Frisco seniors at home, in the home of a friend or relative or in an assisted living setting. Seniors can choose any trusted loved one to serve as their caregiver, including spouses and family members. Frisco seniors interested in CAS can request information about the program online.
