Services Are Provided by the Community Care Service Program?
The Community Care Service Program (CCSP)
provides services to frail, elderly individuals so that they can
remain in their own home or community as an alternative to
nursing facility placement.
Although it is a Medicaid waiver program, CCSP is NOT a type of Medicaid. In
order to receive the Medicaid benefit under CCSP, the client must also receive
one or more services under CCSP. If services are terminated, the client also
loses the Medicaid benefit. Clients may incur a cost share (co-pay) for CCSP
