Federal Assistance Program for Seniors and People with Physical Disabilities

 

RVCOG under an agreement with the state, partners with the Medicaid Long-Term Care and other Financial Assistance programs which are directly provided by District 8 Aging and People with Disabilities.

    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 eligibility for help with medical costs and in some instances, living expenses. Medicaid and Oregon Health Plan assistance for eligible persons ranges from Medicare premium payments to help with paying for doctor and hospital visits, dental and prescription costs.

    The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) formerly known as Food Stamps helps individuals with low incomes stretch their budget to get the food they need for nutritious and well-balanced meals. Those approved for SNAP can use their benefits at many stores, farmers’ markets and senior dining sites.
