North Carolina Medicaid – Helpful Links
If you’re researching the eligibility rules for Medicaid in North Carolina, here are some helpful links:
North Carolina Medicaid Manual
This online manual contains the policy used by county caseworkers in determining eligibility for Medicaid in North Carolina for the aged, blind, and disabled. Medicaid assists people with the cost of care in rehabilitation centers and skilled care in nursing homes.
This printable application can be completed and mailed to county Departments of Social Services in North Carolina to apply for Medicaid. Because eligibility for Medicaid is tied to the amount of assets a person owns and because the timing of an application can be an important factor in eligibility, we highly recommend that you consult an elder law attorney before applying for Medicaid.
Special Assistance Manual
This online manual contains the policy for the Special Assistance program, which covers the cost of care in rest homes and some assisted living facilities. The eligibility rules for Special Assistance are quite different from Medicaid’s rules.
