GateWay is a community that supports adults 22 to 64 with physical disabilities. It is available to those of all means, including those who qualify for Medicaid. A joint program of the federal and state governments, Medicaid can cover the costs associated with receiving assisted living services at GateWay. For more than 50 years, Medicaid has provided a safety net so that adults can get the supports for daily living even after they have depleted their own resources. A person seeking financial support from Medicaid applies through the state in which they reside. The state determines how Medicaid benefits are provided.
Since Medicaid eligibility rules can be challenging for the newcomer, GateWay offers prescreening and consulting prior to submitting a Medicaid application. GateWay walks families through the approval process, identifying the necessary benefits and strategies to navigate the process. This prescreening helps families be better prepared and fully supported in their assisted lifestyle selection.
