Central Mountain Options for Long Term Care (CMOLTC) is the Single Entry Point agency for Custer and Fremont counties. Our goal is to provide long-term services to elderly and disabled persons as a means to help people continue to live in community settings as alternatives to nursing home care.

CMOLTC provides case management services to Medicaid eligible and private pay clients for the purpose of enabling persons in need of long-term care to access appropriate long-term care services. Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) administer to the following populations:

Elderly, blind and disabled
Persons with major mental illness
Persons with brain injury
Children with life limiting illness

Eligibility is two pronged. Clients must meet a Functional Assessment criteria as well as be Medicaid eligible.

Eligibility and service needs are re-determined on an annual basis or at a change of circumstances.

Clients who desire long-term care services shall meet the following criteria:
