Many aging adults suffering from disabling conditions and chronic illnesses need long-term care services. Without it, they may endure serious physical and mental health risks. Affording such services can be a concern for adults and their families. Therefore, many people turn to Medicaid-managed care for assistance.

To make professional care more accessible for our patients, Belleville Senior Services accepts Medicaid Managed Care Insurance as payment. Here, we discuss what Medicaid-managed care is and its use in adult medical daycare services.

What Is Medicaid Managed Care?

Medicaid managed care is the primary program for providing health care and long-term services to patients who require financial support. The program is jointly supported by the federal government and states. It is administered by states while adhering to broad federal guidelines.

The New Jersey Medicaid Program ensures free or low-cost health coverage to eligible people in need. To be considered eligible for financial assistance provided by New Jersey Medicaid, a person must be a resident of the state of New Jersey. Additionally, they must need health care/insurance assistance and be in a financial situation that is characterized as low income or very low income. 

What Services Apply?

As the nation’s public health insurance program, Medicaid managed care provides financial support for a variety of groups and an assortment of health services. It is the principal source of adult medical daycare services, offering assistance with the following types of care:

Daytime Senior Medical Services

Aging adults with chronic conditions and other ailments may require attentive medical support. The helping hand of a trained medical support professional can greatly benefit seniors and their well-being. Medicaid-managed care covers daytime senior medical services.

Daily Senior Living Services

Completing daily tasks becomes increasingly more difficult with aging. For seniors, taking on these everyday tasks alone can be dangerous, increasing the need for accessible daily senior living services. Through Medicaid managed care, these patients can receive assistance with many aspects of personal care such as bathing and dressing.

Senior Nutrition Program

Proper nutrition is a critical aspect of living at any age, especially as people get older. That’s because adequate nutrition can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases commonly associated with aging, such as heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis. 

Seniors can use Medicaid-managed care to receive nutritionally balanced meals from Belleville Senior Services. Our senior nutrition program emphasizes each client’s specific nutritional needs.

Belleville Senior Services offers aging adults senior activities to stimulate their minds and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
