Community Benefit Program

The Community Benefit offers services for members who qualify for nursing facility services but want to live at home. This program is an alternative option to placement in a nursing facility and is based on your needs. The Community Benefit is not available for 24-hour care. This benefit supplements your natural support.

If you are already eligible for Medicaid, please speak with your Managed Care Organization to discuss the next steps. If you are otherwise not eligible to apply for this program, please contact the New Mexico Aging and Long-Term Services Division at 1-800-432-2080 to be placed on the Central Registry.
