Medicaid applications can be obtained by visiting or calling your local Department of Social Services.

Hospital social workers can complete UAI (Uniform Assessment Instruments) forms necessary for long-term care Medicaid for nursing home admission if the patient is unable to pay for nursing home care. If you believe you or your family member will require long-term care, it is essential to have the UAI completed while in the hospital because the social service social workers that do UAIs for the community often have long waiting lists. Hospital social workers are required to complete necessary requested UAI evaluations before you leave the hospital.
