Calvert County Health Department
Home and Community-Based Services
Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) include Community First Choice (CFC), Community Options (CO), Community Personal Assistance Services (CPAS) and Increased Community Services (ICS). They empower older adults and people with disabilities to live in the community. Each program has different requirements based on financial eligibility and level of need. For further information, you can visit the DHMH website at www.dhmh.maryland.gov.
The programs provide assistance with activities of daily living to Medicaid recipients who have a chronic illness, medical condition or disability. Services are provided in the eligible individual’s home.
To apply, please contact the Maryland Access Point at the Calvert County Office on Aging at 410-535-4606. Qualified applicants must meet both the Medicaid Program’s financial and medical requirements.
An assessment done by your Local Health Department determines medical eligibility. Financial eligibility is determined by either the Local Department of Social Services or DHMH.
Once you are determined eligible, each participant will choose an approved Supports Planning Agency to guide them through developing a plan for services.
