Financial Assistance Programs in Southfield

Medicaid Program in Southfield

The Medicaid program in Southfield and all of Michigan is funded jointly by the State of Michigan and the federal government. It provides health care coverage to people who meet certain eligibility requirements. Medicaid is an entitlement for those who meet the requirements, although there may be a co-pay for some participants, depending on their program. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) manages Medicaid programs.

Medicaid pays for nursing home care for low-income seniors who are expected to be in care for 30 consecutive days or more. Nursing home care is only paid for when it’s medically required and residents must be assessed with the Nursing Facility Level of Care Determination. Participants must also meet income and asset requirements. The maximum amount of income and assets permitted differs based on the marital status of the applicant and whether their spouse is also applying for Medicaid. Residents in the program may be required to contribute to the cost of their care, depending on their income. This is called the Patient-Pay Amount.

The Michigan Home Help Program provides financial assistance to seniors living at home and is designed to delay entry into institutions. To be eligible for the program, seniors must be eligible for Medicaid. They must also be assessed as needing help to perform at least one of the seven essential activities of daily living. The program provides financial assistance to pay for help with personal care such as bathing and toileting and activities such as laundry and shopping. Participants can self-direct their care in this program and can hire certain family members. 

The third program available is MI Health Link, which offers a broad range of medical, pharmacy and other services to participants through a single program. Unfortunately, it’s not currently offered to residents of Southfield.

To apply for any Medicaid program, seniors must contact their local MDHHS office.
