  Medicaid Funded Long-Term Care Services

This program administers and operates Maryland's Long-Term Care Medicaid program, Coordination of Community Services, and Community First Choice (CFC). CFC Supports Planners and Nurse Monitors provide a continuum of services designed to allow people of all ages and in need of long-term care to live in the community, rather than in institutions. Adult Evaluation and Review Services (AERS) provides mandatory medical evaluations for clients seeking these services and for those referred by Adult Protective Services. In addition, this program area provides service coordination to eligible young people funded under the Maryland Home and Community Based Services Waiver for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Autism Waiver Program).
