Information on Nursing Home Medicaid will be presented in programs to be held in March and April at several branches of Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL).
Conducted by staff from the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the programs are the result of a partnership between HHS and MCPL.
Information presented will feature an overview of what Nursing Home Medicaid is, how it differs from Medicare, general asset and income regulations, and what to expect during the application process. A question and answer session will follow the program.
Beginning March 14, the program will be held according to the following schedule:
