ALTCS Overview

Here we have an overview of Independent Living. Speak with your Care Advocate regarding your specific needs.

ALTC’s is a Medicaid based program that helps those who need care and have exhausted their resources. Once approved for ALTC’s the applicants cost of care is covered whether that care be in an assisted living facility or be in the form of private duty caregivers coming to the home.

As a Medicaid based program ALTC’s is need based. In our resources section we have more information about applying for this program. Below is a brief summary of the qualifications for the program.


  • Monthly GROSS income for applicant……….$2,313
  • Monthly GROSS income for married applicant- both incomes combined……….$4626
  • Resources for individual………. $2,000

In addition to qualifying for financial need, medical need must also be demonstrated. A functional and medical assessment is performed to demonstrate that the applicant is truly in need of long-term care. To qualify medically, the applicant must score 60 points or higher on this assessment.

If you believe you will qualify medically but think you may be over the income or resource limits our Care Advocates can refer you to an attorney that specializes in ALTC’s planning for a free initial consultation. If you have not already applied and you think you may be eligible we encourage you to read our article on how to apply for ALTC’s or to reach out to your Care Advocate for assistance.

I could not be happier with the services provided by CareWise. Genevieve was incredibly professional and kind during the process of finding a home that could give the attention necessary for my brothers needs. Just having someone who would LISTEN to our needs took so much pressure off.


Patrick and Genevieve have worked tirelessly and with great expertise to help me find and vet the right facility for my mother. They have a broad and deep knowledge of the facilities in the greater Scottsdale area and have helped me with hundreds of details and important information about each of the choices I reviewed.


My elderly brother needed a new living arrangement after he convalesced following a hospital stay. My nephew connected with Patrick and Genevieve through the hospital and we could not have found the perfect place for my brother without them. There are so many options in the Phoenix area that none of us had the time to figure out what place would be best for him. The experience was great and they are both very caring and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them if a family was in need of finding the perfect place for a family member.
