              LONG TERM CARE ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM


The Long Term Care Alternative Program is an informational, educational referral source
for elderly and/or disabled adults who are considering long term care. The program is to
inform and assist those individuals on locating possible home or community based
alternatives to nursing facility placements. The individual will be provided assistance in
locating the most suitable and cost effective services available in their community. The
program is designed to extend their stay at home and to prevent premature nursing facility
placement. A referral to the program does not affect approval for nursing facility
placements.

                                 MEDIGAP INSURANCE
Medigap insurance is sold by private insurance companies, not the government, and is one of the
solutions to fill the gap in Medicare coverage by paying some of the coverage between Medicare
and your total expenses. The government knows there is a wide range of premiums and policies
and has offered assistance through the Medigap program. For counseling and advice on Medigap
insurance contact:

                                 MEDICARE INSURANCE
Medicare is a health insurance program for people age 65 or older, people under age 65 with certain
disabilities and people of all ages with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring
dialysis or a kidney transplant.) Medicare has part A, which is hospital insurance, and part B, which
is medical insurance. Medicare has three enrollment periods for Medicare part B. For more
information please call the Social Security Administration at 1-800-325-0778.


                                  MEDICAID INSURANCE
Medicaid is a national health care program. It helps pay for medical services for low income people.
Applications for Medicaid for individuals who are aged or disabled may be filed at the Medicaid
Regional Office that serves the county where the individual lives or the county where the individual
resides in a nursing facility.
