Funding Source #1- Medicaid

By Peter McIndoe

A lot of people ask if we take Medicare or TRICARE as a payment method.  We do not because Medicare and TRICARE will not pay for non-medical in-home care services.  But, here is the good news, Medicaid does pay for non-medical in-home care services!  

Home Helpers can now serve Medicaid clients across Central Arkansas - pretty much wherever you live whether Little Rock, Conway, Cabot, Jacksonville, North Little Rock, Maumelle, Mayflower, Ward, Beebe or surrounding areas.  We are thrilled to be able to serve more seniors that need in-home care.  

Home Helpers & Direct Link are listed on the Freedom of Choice List for Medicaid ARChoices Providers.  ARChoices was launched last January and combined two previous programs (ElderChoices and AAPD) into one new program.  AAPD stands for Assistance for Adults with Physical Disabilities. We are listed as  provider of Personal Care (bathing, dressing, toileting, incontinence, skin care, nail care, etc.) and Attendant Care (companionship, housekeeping, laundry, errands, transportation, etc.).  

To see if you or your loved one qualifies for Medicaid services, please call the office and we can walk you through the qualification criteria and application process.  (501) 663-3900.
