What is OPI ?
OPI is a program providing a variety of services to Oregonians age 60 and older who do not receive most Medicaid services. These services are intended to support their independence and allow them to remain in their home as long as they wish.
Who is eligible for OPI ?
To qualify for OPI a person must be age 60 or older and need some type of in-home assistance based on an assessment done by a KLCCOA Case Manager. Persons younger than age 60 who have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia may be eligible for OPI services.
How much do OPI services cost?
All individuals receiving OPI services have the possibility of a one time $25.00 fee.
Additionally, a monthly sliding scale fee can be charged for services based on the amount of your household income, after deductions for medical expenses.
Income levels are subject to change as the federal poverty levels are adjusted annually.
