As of 12/15/2011 there were 905 people waiting for home care on the Extended Option Care Program(ECOP). This is a service for those.. .FOR MORE CLICK TITLE...  who need more than the usual amount of home care and who also do not qualify for Medicaid. Many are close to the financial eligibility but have assests which are a little high. It is estimated that the wait list will be over 1,000 in January.
This program depends on funding by the State legislature. A supplemental budget will be required to decrease the wait list.
