Below are some common questions asked about Medicaid.
Can your Nurses Aides run errands for their clients?
Yes, Our nurses aides can run errands such as grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy, going to food establishments to pick up meals, etc., however this task must be an approved task on your medicaid care plan.
Are your nurse-aides permitted to transport their clients to the doctor, the store or to other appointments etc?

How many hours of service can I qualify for and how do I go about obtaining Medicaid Services?
