What is the Alternative Care Program?

The Alternative Care (AC) Program is a state-funded cost-sharing program that supports certain home- and community-based services for eligible Minnesotans, age 65 and over. This program provides home- and community-based services to prevent and delay transitions to nursing facility level of care. The program prevents the impoverishment of eligible seniors and shares the cost of care with clients by maximizing use of their own resources. It is administered by counties and tribal health agencies. Call the Senior LinkAge Link® at 800-333-2433 for more information about the program.
