Program Description
 
Case Management Program for the Frail Elderly / Elderly Waiver
Case Management Program for the Frail Elderly (CMPFE), which includes the Elderly Waiver Program, has been an active program offered by Crawford County Home Health, Hospice & Public Health since September 1996. CMPFE is
comprised of two components, Elderly Waiver and Case Management. Case Management is available to any person regardless of income, who is age 60 or older. Case Management identifies the need for and coordinates community resources to be utilized.

Any person who chooses to participate in Case Management can access nutrition and/or mental health counseling paid for by
the Elderbridge Agency on Aging. Senior Living Grant monies are also available to provide services. Elderly Waiver is a Medicaid program made available to any person who is age 65 and older who meets two criteria: nursing home level
of care and income that does not exceed 300% of the maximum monthly Social Security payment for one person. Level of care is determined by the Iowa Foundation for Medical Care (IFMC), and income eligibility by the Iowa Department of Human Services.

For the person who meets both criteria, the goal is to provide enough services for the elderly person to remain in his or her
own home as long as possible. CCHHH&PH offers nursing, home health aide, homemaker, and respite care to eligible clients, and Medicaid provides financial assistance for prescription medications, assistive devices, and medical/hospital bills. The Crawford County Case Management Team, which includes other providers in the county, meets once a month to discuss new clients and to review active CMPFE clients. CCHHH&PH serves as the facilitator for all clients in Crawford County regardless of agency providing services.
