home and community based services (HCBS)
Home- and community-based services (HCBS) include a variety of medical and social services provided to individuals with functional or cognitive limitations. People who receive HCBS are able to continue living in the community – instead of entering a nursing home or another institutional setting. HCBS programs serve the needs of distinct groups of individuals, including people with physical disabilities, intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and mental illnesses.
Financial help by state for Medicare enrollees
Our guide to financial assistance for Medicare enrollees includes information about HCBS, Medicaid spend-down, Medicaid for the aged, blind and disabled – and more.
A federally qualified health center is a community-based facility that offers comprehensive primary and preventive care to patients, regardless of their ability to pay for services. Facilities may include community centers or homeless shelters in “medically underserved areas” where individuals lack access to services.
