MEDICAID programs

The task of the Medicaid Department of the Bergen County Board of Social Services is to efficiently and equitably administer the regulations of Federal, State and County funded Medical programs that offer medical benefits to various categories of eligible individuals.

MEDICAID ONLY

A program of medical benefits under Title XIX, available to aged, blind, or disabled individuals who do not wish to receive a money payment (SSI) but who have financial and/or medical eligibility and either reside in the community or who are receiving care in an eligible medical institution.

MEDICALLY NEEDY

A program enacted by P.L. 1985, Chap. 381, that extends limited Medicaid program benefits to certain groups of Medically Needy persons whose income and/or resources exceed the standards for other Medicaid Programs, but is insufficient to meet their medical expenses.

COMMUNITY CARE PROGRAM
FOR THE ELDERLY AND DISABLED

A program to help eligible individuals to remain in the community, or to return to the community, rather than be cared for in a long term care facility or a hospital setting by use of specific home and community based services . The cost to Medicaid for services provided under CCPED generally cannot be greater than 70% of the cost of institutionalization of that individual.

MODEL WAIVER

A program to help eligible individuals to remain in the community or to return to the community rather than be cared for in a long term care facility or a hospital setting by use of home and community based services. The cost to Medicaid for services provided to the Model Waiver client cannot be greater than the cost of institutionalization of that same client. Those served under this program would normally not be eligible for Medicaid services while living at home because of their own income or because of SSI deeming rules.

NEW JERSEY CARE

A program to help aged, blind, and disabled individuals, and pregnant women and children under age 19 who meet the financial eligibility requirements. This program provides expanded eligibility for Medicaid to a group of individuals whose income exceeds Medicaid Only or TANF/WFNJ standards. Aged, blind and disabled individuals must have income below the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
