Yuma, Arizona has many options when it comes to senior living, with a number of assisted living facilities, group homes and nursing facilities located in Yuma and the surrounding areas.  Having a variety of living options, however, is only helpful to Yuma seniors who can pay for their long-term care.  Those who are unable to afford costly long-term healthcare may require the assistance of a Yuma Elder Law Attorney.  A Yuma attorney can help prepare seniors to become eligible for assistance in the event that they require long-term healthcare.

Once approved for the ALTCS benefit, Yuma seniors partner with a Program Contractor to obtain their healthcare services.  Program contractors assign a case manager who can work closely with ALTCS members and their primary physicians to determine a suitable level of care.  ALTCS members then select healthcare providers from within a network, much like an HMO.  As questions about long-term healthcare come up, ALTCS members and their families can address them with their case manager.

Yuma ALTCS members can select from the following Program Contractors:
