Georgia Medicaid's Community Care Services Program (CCSP) operates under the Elderly and Disabled Waiver. CCSP is a program designed to help frail older adults remain living in their own homes or communities and to receive services in those locations as an alternative to nursing homes.
Medicaid Waiver Program - SOURCE
SOURCE is available to the frail elderly and disabled who are eligible or receiving SSI/Medicaid (Supplemental Security Income). People under age 65 are eligible provided that they have a disability and are receiving SSI/Medicaid. If you or your loved one is receiving SSI/Medicaid you may be eligible for the SOURCE Program.
