Single Entry Point / Options for Long-Term Care
Options for Long-Term Care (OLTC/SEP) is a Medicaid program that provides functional assessments and on-going case management for individuals who are in need of long-term care services. We cover six counties in Northeast Colorado including Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma. As an agency, we coordinate a spectrum of services that provides choices to individuals with disabling functional conditions and limited finances so they can continue to live in their own homes or in other community settings, as alternatives to nursing home care. We understand that sometimes needs go beyond medical and behavioral care, that’s why we have fully trained, professional case managers to help you get the services you need. We have several waiver programs to choose from that are designed to meet the needs of those we service. Waivers include: Elderly, Blind and Disabled, Brain Injured, Developmentally Disabled, Community Mental Health Support and Children with Life Limiting Illness. SEP/OLTC requires both medical (functional) and financial eligibility to qualify for the program. Once eligibility is established, Medicaid will pay the cost of all of the required services.
