Cost Effective Assistance
Nothing is more frustrating than when a loved one needs care and everything seems
to get in the way of making necessary things happen. That is how we can help.
Our staff can take your loved one’s case from start to finish and get her or him
the assisted living or nursing home care that they need.
After all, when time is of essence, you need someone who understands all the twists
and turns of the ALTCS Application application process.
Our services are less than half the cost of big ElderLaw Firms because our overhead
is lower, not our standards or skills.
“We hired a large law firm to help us with the ALTCS process. They wanted to charge us $8,000.00. We called CarePatrol’s ALTCS program and saved over $5,500. We used that money to help pay for mom’s care”.

The AHCCCS program initially did not provide for (among other groups) impoverished individuals in nursing homes. Beginning in 1989 the federal government required AHCCCS to provide care to those populations not previously covered. The administrative entity created to handle the long term care component of AHCCCS is called the Arizona Long Term Care System, or ALTCS. For most purposes, ALTCS, AHCCCS and Medicaid are interchangeable terms, at least when referring to institutionalized patients. As with AHCCCS itself, most of the regulations governing the ALTCS program are set by federal law, and so residents of other states will see similar issues. The difference between states, however, can be both subtle and profound; the questions and answers here are specifically tailored to Arizona law and practice, and the answer to any given question may not be the same in another state.
