My family member is in a facility. What do I need to do to get help?
It is best to contact the agency in this situation. There are many things to take into consideration. For example, the type of facility he/she is looking to go into or if the client has a spouse that is going to remain in the community. We want to be sure the client gets all the necessary forms and gets referred to social services, if necessary, to receive the benefits they need.

You cannot apply for Long Term Care Assistance more than one month in advance of when the person needs the coverage to start. In most cases you will need to use the Minnesota Health Care Program Application for Long Term Care Services. However, if you are already on assistance contact your worker to obtain the correct forms.
