In Connecticut the Medicaid programs are often referred to as Title 19 or “state”.  The Medicaid programs for elders are those that specifically provide services to the elderly (persons over the age of 65) who are in need of long-term care services.   Connecticut provides Medicaid to the “medically needy” coverage group those in a Nursing Facility and provides home health and community based services under the Connecticut Home Care Programs for Elders (CHCPE).   To be eligible for any of these programs a person must be income and asset eligible as well as meet the functional eligibility requirements (age and type and frequency of assistance needed).
