Who can claim CAPI (Cash Benefit Program for Immigrants) and how does it work?

CAPI is for low income immigrants who are aged 65 and older, blind or has a disability that meets the general eligibility requirements for SSI, but are not eligible for SSI because of their immigrant status.

Who can claim Long Term Care (LTC) and how does it work?

About 60 percent of individuals over age 65 will require at least some type of long -term care services during their lifetime.

Long-term care (LTC) is a variety of services which help meet both the medical and non-medical needs of people with a chronic illness or disability who cannot care for themselves for long periods of time.
It is common for long-term care to provide custodial and non-skilled care, such as assisting with normal daily tasks like dressing, bathing, and using the bathroom. Increasingly, long-term care involves providing a level of medical care that requires the expertise of skilled practitioners to address the often multiple chronic conditions associated with older populations. Long-term care can be provided at home, in the community, in assisted living facilities or in nursing homes. Long-term care may be needed by people of any age, although it is a more common need for senior citizens.
We evaluate your physical and mental condition, your family needs, your budget, your social and cultural needs and match you with your favorite long term care.

Who can claim Residential Care and how does it work?

Applicants may choose to live in their own homes or in a residential care setting covered under the waiver: Adult Foster Care homes or Assisted Living/Residential Care facilities. A waiver participant needing nursing care may choose to have that care delivered by a licensed nurse or, in those situations where delegation is appropriate, by an unlicensed person providing services under the direction of a registered nurse.
The majority of services offered under the CBA waiver program are provided by licensed home and community support services agencies. These agencies provide services to participants living in their own homes, adult foster homes, assisted living/residential care facilities (formerly known as personal care facilities), and other locations where services are needed.
Financial Criteria
Two groups are financially eligible for waiver services:

Asset limits for both groups are $2,000 for an individual and $3,000 for a couple.
The state does not require persons in Group B who are receiving waiver services in their own home to share the cost of services. For people in Group B who are living in residential care settings, the cost sharing amount is equal to the client's remaining income after all allowable expenses have been deducted. Clients must pay the cost sharing amount to the provider contracted to deliver authorized waiver services.
We evaluate your physical and mental condition, your family needs, your budget, your social and cultural needs and match you with most suitable residential care available to you.
