Medicaid is the state and federally funded program that provides coverage for long-term care and medical services. The federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) contract with the state of Oregon to provide these programs. Services are provided to eligible individuals aged 65 and older, and younger adults with disabilities aged 18 to 64. APD staff determine financial eligibility for help with medical costs and in some instances, living expenses. Medicaid and Oregon Health Plan assistance for financially-eligible persons ranges from Medicare premium payments to help with paying for doctor and hospital visits, dental and prescription costs.
