The Columbus Regional SOURCE community outreach program has been a source of reassurance in the area for older and disabled citizens since 2001.
SOURCE provides in-home health and medical services for the aged and disabled on Medicaid, and helps them remain in their homes for as long as possible, avoiding or delaying costly long-term placement in nursing facilities.
The Columbus Regional SOURCE program serves Muscogee, Marion, Talbot, Harris and Chattahoochee counties. SOURCE stands for Service Options Using Resources in Community Environments.
The goals of the program are:
To reduce the need for long-term placement while increasing options in the community
To eliminate fragmented care and enhance wellness
To encourage cost-effective use of state Medicaid resources
Who’s eligible? - Individuals aged 65 and older, or disabled citizens who are eligible for Medicaid through Supplemental Security Income or through Public Law programs.
