Specialized Medicine

We offer the CIMZIA Injections through our Pharmaceutical Provider for individuals suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis (PSA), Rheumatoid Arthritis and Crohn’s Disease.

Our nurses provide this service in your home intermittently per your physician’s orders. This specialized medication is delivered straight to your home where our nurses will prepare the injection and administration.

We also provide services through the Attendant and Home-Chore Program with the Veterans Administration; however this is not Medicaid authorized.

We in the Medicaid Division of Algonquin Nurses believe and respect the rights of individuals to have a choice in their own decision to live independently and freely. Our Administrative and support staff who work directly with our clients are dedicated to serve the elderly and disabled consistently in their homes and communities.

Our Medicaid Services are supervised by a Director and Managers who are Medicaid certified, and are experts in the staffing industry.

Algonquin Nurses will coordinate care between your physician and the Department of Health and Senior Services, and the Division of Senior and Disability Services or other programs as authorized by the state Medicaid Program. We are a member of the Missouri Council for In-Home Services, and our Medicaid Division actively supports the mission of this organization, which assists in providing leadership in ethical business practices and the highest standards of client care.

Algonquin Nurses works closely with Missouri Legislators, which includes senators, state representatives and even the governor’s office to improve the services for our clients in the community where they reside.

Our Medicaid Division staffs qualified nurse aides and professional nurses that service all of the St. Louis and St. Louis County area, as well as St. Charles, Lincoln, Warren, Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, St. Francois, Ste.

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?

No, the Missouri Code of State Regulations for Medicaid prohibits nurse aides from transporting their clients. In simple terms the program is called In-Home Services, because the tasks are to be serviced in the home.

Can an aide stay overnight with client in their home?

Again, the Missouri Code of State Regulations prohibits the aide from residing with the client. Clients always have the option of paying for this service is that is the immediate need, and this is offered through our Private Support Division (see the private pay section)

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

This depends on the level of calculated care points and on several other factors. Monthly units (hours) will vary from client to client, and is determined at the time your assessment is completed by Department of Health and Senior Services and Division of Senior and Disability Services. You can can find out by calling 866-835-3505.
