PASSPORT Medicaid Waiver services
The purpose of PASSPORT is to provide older individuals in need of nursing home services with an in–home alternative. PASSPORT permits individuals who live in a home setting to receive services paid for by Medicaid and state funds.

How much does PASSPORT cost?
There is no charge for an in-home assessment to discuss your needs and options.
