Community Alternatives Program

The Community Alternatives Program (CAP) at New Hanover Regional Medical Center provides case management services to help eligible Medicaid beneficiaries receive needed care in their homes.

If you are a Medicaid beneficiary, you may be eligible for CAP. As a regional provider for the CAP program, NHRMC can help assess your needs, refer you for services and connect you to resources to help you remain in your home.

What is CAP?

The CAP program serves children and adults who meet state Medicaid eligibility requirements. The goal is to connect patients with necessary services so they can stay home rather than receive care in an institutional setting such as a nursing home.

How do I access CAP services?

CAP participants must meet all Medicaid eligibility requirements. A referral is needed to access CAP services, and eligible beneficiaries must fill out the application packet for the program they are interested in.
