County programs must provide the basic health care services as defined in Chapter 61. All services must be medically necessary. Some services include: primary care, immunizations, inpatient and outpatient hospital services, lab and x-ray, skilled nursing facilities, and three prescriptions a month. However, durable medical equipment, home health care, counseling, emergency transportation, dental, and vision are all services that are not covered through the program.
Johnson County Indigent Health Care serves residents of Johnson County that intend to remain there. Income and resource limits must be met before eligibility is made. Counties are required to cover individuals with countable income equal to or less than 21% of the federal poverty income limits. Household resources may not exceed $2,000.00 (or $3,000.00 if a relative who is aged or disabled lives with the household.)
