support. The vision is to have ADRCs in every community serving as highly visible and trusted places where people can turn for information on the full range of long-term support options and a single point of entry to public long-term support programs and benefits.
ADRCs are a resource for both public and private-pay individuals. Making information and counseling available to private-pay individuals is a central element of the AOA/ACL/CMS Resource Center vision. Reaching people before they become Medicaid-eligible, and helping them to learn about low-cost options and programs such as private long-term support insurance, can help individuals make better use of their own resources and help to prevent or delay spend-down to Medicaid. ADRCs serve elders age 60 and older, and people with physical disabilities over the age of 18. Click HERE to find ADRCs throughout Montana.
