This is a list of financial and care assistance programs, usually but not always from Medicaid or Medicare, which provide the beneficiary with financial assistance and with the flexibility to "consumer direct" or self-direct the spending of the funds to care providers of their choosing.

Most states have their own names for these types of programs, typically associated with a specific Medicaid waiver. For example, in Pennsylvania, their program is called “Services My Way”, in California, “In Home Supportive Services” and in Michigan, the “Choice Waiver”.  In addition, some states offer consumer direction in more than one of their programs.

The Community Attendant Services (CAS) Program is part of the Community Care for the Aged / Disabled (CCAD) Program, which offers a suite of services designed for Texas residents to assist them in living in the community, rather than require institutionalization. While most of the services provided under CCAD are not Medicaid funded, CAS is an exception and is Medicaid funded.

CAS is intended for seniors and disabled individuals who are functionally unable to manage their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), which includes actions such as bathing, dressing, and mobility, without assistance. Program participants receive non-technical, attendant care in their homes.

Enrolled individuals have the option of using the state agency to manage their care services or they can participate in the Consumer Directed Services (CDS) option, which means they receive "cash and counseling" and are responsible for hiring, training, and managing their own care providers. One especially attractive component of the CDS option is that friends and some family members can be hired as caregivers; they can be paid to provide attendant care services. Sometimes this means that an elder's current unpaid family caregivers can become paid contractors. Close relatives and legal guardians, however, are typically excluded from this option.

While this model of program is often referred to as Cash and Counseling, the name is slightly misleading. The CDS option requires the use of a fiscal intermediary that actually receives the money from the state and pays the care providers following authorization of payment by the program participant.

Caregiver Eligibility:

There are medical and financial eligibility requirements for the CAS Program. Functionally, individuals must be unable to perform some of their activities of daily living without assistance, such as dressing, eating, transferring, toileting or basic mobility. A medical doctor must document their need for assistance.

Financially, as of 2018 individuals must have a monthly income less than $2,250 ($27,000 / year) and assets / resources valued at less than $2,000. For couples, the monthly income limit is twice the individual limit, $4,500 ($54,000 / year) and the resource limit is 50% higher at $3,000. Note that some assets, such as a primary home, may be considered exempt. Financial eligibility changes annually and is calculated as a percentage of SSI income limit. There are no age restrictions in order to be eligible for this program.

1-855-937-2372

Caregiver Eligibility:

Eligibility for Non-Medicaid Services and Support is determined by an individual's place of residence. For example, services differ if one lives at home, in the home of their caregiver, in adult foster care or in assisted living. Eligibility requirements common to all the programs and services include:

  • Individuals must be residents of Texas. Length of residency is not considered.
  • Individual must be 18+ years old
  • Monthly income cannot exceed three times the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payment. As of 2018, for a single applicant, this amount is $2,250. For married applicants, the monthly income limit is $4,500. 
  • Assets and resources (as of 2018) for a single individual cannot exceed $5,000. For married applicants, the limit is slightly higher at $6,000. Please make note, the asset limit is different for Community Attendant Services. For this service, the assist limit for a single individual is $2,000, and for a married couple, the asset limit is $3,000. It is worth noting there are many exemptions to what is considered a countable asset (one's primary home and a single vehicle, for example). 
  • Individuals must be disabled or functionally impaired to the extent that assistance is required.
  • Individuals cannot concurrently receive assistance from Medicaid for the same services.

Yes

* The Caregiver Advise, Record, Enable (CARE) Act enables family caregivers to provide safe and effective home care to older adults. In particular, it supports family caregivers when their loved ones are admitted to the hospital, and helps them to learn how to safely provide care at home once their loved ones are discharged from a medical facility.

While the finer points of the CARE Act vary from state to state, it contains three central provisions in every version nationwide:

  1. The name of the family caregiver is recorded when a loved one is admitted into a hospital or rehabilitation facility.
  2. The family caregiver is notified if the loved one is to be discharged to another facility or back home.
  3. The hospital or rehabilitation facility must provide an explanation and live instruction of the medical tasks—such as medication management, injections, wound care, and transfers—that the family caregiver will perform at home.
