I am trying to help my wife apply for Medicaid for her 84 year old mother and utilize the Community First Choice Program, where in a family member can be a paid caregiver. I am told that one must first apply for Medicaid. I am getting confusing answers from the local health department and social services about where to apply for Medicaid. I'm told that because of her age (84 years) it has to be done through Social Services. That doesn't make sense to me if there is an online application or phone application available through the state website. I'm also told that eligiblity is affected by what type of Medicare she currently has. I have not read that anywhere.
