Financial Assistance Programs in Lawrenceville

Medicaid Program in Lawrenceville

Georgia Medicaid is a state and federally funded program that provides health insurance to low-income residents and individuals who are aged, blind or disabled or require long-term nursing care. Medicaid helps Lawrenceville  residents with the cost of primary medical care, durable medical equipment, prescription medications and long-term care that’s provided at home or in an assisted living facility. This entitlement program is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Health. Eligibility is based on medical and financial criteria.

  • Traditional Medicaid serves low-income adults aged 64 or younger, and Medicaid for the aged, blind and disabled assists seniors 65 and older. To qualify, applicants must earn less than $771 per month if applying individually or $1,157 if applying jointly.
  • Institutional Medicaid is available to individuals who live in a nursing home or who need assistance with at least two activities of daily living but prefer to receive these services at home. The income limit for this program is $2,313 per month per applicant.

Additionally, Medicaid considers your countable resources. The standard asset limit for Medicaid is $2,000 for individuals and $3,000 for couples. Fortunately, there are numerous exemptions. For example, a nonapplicant spouse can keep up to $126,420 in resources plus a minimum monthly maintenance needs allowance. When calculating your countable assets, you can exclude the value of your primary home up to $585,000. Household items, collectibles, burial funds and life insurance policies worth up to $1,500 are also exempt.

To see if you are eligible for ABD Medicaid or long-term care coverage and waiver benefits, contact the DFCS Office in Lawrenceville by calling (678) 518-5500, or visit the Georgia Gateway application portal online.

Medicaid Waivers in Lawrenceville

Community Care Services Program Waiver (CCSP) 

The Community Care Services Program is one of two 1915(c) waivers that help Medicaid-eligible Georgians remain in the community or receive services in an assisted living facility rather than a nursing home. It allows members to choose their own service providers and manage their own care. Covered services include adult day programs, home-delivered meals, respite care and assistance provided in licensed residential facilities.

Applicants must require an intermediate level of care and be financially eligible for Medicaid LTC benefits. As with most Medicaid waivers, there is a needs-based waiting list. To learn more, contact your local Area Agency on Aging at (404) 463-3333, or see our CCSP guide, which takes an in-depth look at this program. 

Service Options Using Resources in Community Environment (SOURCE) 

Service Options Using Resources in Community Environment is an alternative to the CCSP waiver. It covers the same services, but it uses a managed care model that involves your primary medical provider. SOURCE is open to low-income seniors and disabled adults who are eligible for SSI or ABD Medicaid without a share of cost. Due to the stricter financial eligibility requirements, there may not be a waiting list for this program. Faith Health Services provides services to eligible seniors across Lawrenceville, Gwinnett County and metro Atlanta. It also manages the application process. To learn more, call the organization directly at (678) 624-1646, or view our SOURCE guide for seniors.
