The State of Maine requires an assessment to determine an individual’s functional and financial eligibility for a variety of services including Adult Day Services that are funded by certain state programs or through MaineCare. Assessments help individuals and families understand what services are available to them and to plan for service needs. The Medical Eligibility Determination Form (MED) is the tool approved by OADS Aging Services to be used to determine program eligibility.  Assessments can happen in few different ways: by calling an adult day provider directly, connecting with your local Aging and Disability Resource Center or by calling Goold Health Systems.
