Medical Assistance - Program Management - Alternative Health Services Subject Files

Identifier: 098-02-009

Scope and Contents

This series consists of original and photocopied material relating to researching, planning and implementing the Alternative Health Services Program. This Federally funded research project was designed to demonstrate the cost and effectiveness of keeping elderly persons in their own homes and offering them services such as home-makers, day rehabilitation, or visiting nurses as an alternative to premature nursing home institutionalization. This was accomplished by evaluating and assessing information given by Medicaid recipients, who volunteered to be research subjects, in an effort to ascertain whether offering special project services under Medicaid would be beneficial to the State of Georgia and its elderly population. The records of this series include (but are not limited to): (1) originals of Alternative Health Services Program goals : (2) originals and copies of policies, eligibility procedures, directives to county Departments of Family and Children Services (3) copies of Health Education and Welfare grant documentation and project guidelines; (4) originals of forms #181-205: (5) related correspondence; and (6) final summarized report. The Alternative Health Services Project was completed March 31, 1981 and a final summarized report issued (see box 2).
