Parish Nurse News - Dawn Armstrong

Medicaid Coverage During

COVID-19 Isolation

Medicaid has added a number of flexibilities for recipients and providers to facilitate the provision of health services while practicing social distancing. Added flexibilities include allowing additional services to be provided via telemedicine, coverage of certain services provided via telephone, and flexibilities regarding filling prescription drugs and medical supplies.

Another service:

Money Follows the Person (MFP) helps people living in long term care facilities return to their homes and communities.

The program provides funding for one-time transitions and supports that aren’t typically covered by Medicaid to assist people moving home. Services include: Transitional: a security deposit or first month’s rent, household goods, supplies, furnishings. Transportation: moving expenses and daily travel for appointments (get groceries, run errands, etc.). Assistive Technology: adaptive equipment, safety grab bars, etc.

If you need assistance then don’t hesitate to contact Department of Social Services (DSS) at https://dss.sd.gov or call the community helpline by dialing 211.
