Yes, eligible Nevada residents can receive financial assistance for home health care. Nevada Medicaid’s Personal Care Services (PCS) program pays for in-home services for Medicaid recipients who require assistance with activities of daily living. These services offer an alternative to facility-based care and give Nevada seniors the option of living independently in their home. 

Personal Care Services Program Details

The Personal Care Services program provides in-home care to individuals who need assistance with activities of daily living. The goal of this program is to allow eligible individuals to live in their home longer. Two home health care options are available: Provider Agency Care and Self-Directed Care.

Provider Agency Care is coordinated by Medicare and connects eligible individuals with an agency that can provide in-home care. This option takes the guesswork out of hiring a home health care service, and the agency will take care of the scheduling and provision of care.

Alternatively, the Self-Directed Care option allows individuals to select their own care providers. They will hire, train, supervise and schedule in-home care, giving them total independence over the process. 

Program Eligibility

To be eligible for the Personal Care Services program, individuals must be eligible for full Nevada Medicaid. Additionally, they must have a health condition or disability that requires assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, mobility and eating. This program is administered through the Nevada Medicaid program, which determines what individuals are eligible for funded home health care.
