Adult Medical Program
This program provides basic medical care to low-income adults who do not qualify for Medicaid. There are asset and income limits. Some counties have a county health plan that the person must be enrolled in to receive AMP benefits. Additional services may be available through the county health plan. Contact your local DHS County Office for eligibility and application information.
This is a waiver program that provides home- and community-based health care services if you are aged or disabled - allowing them to remain at home to receive health services. If they did not receive such services, they would require nursing home care. The cost of care at home must be less than the cost of care in a nursing home. This waiver may provide other benefits to help the person remain at home. Contact your local DHS County Office for eligibility and application information.
