Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP)

Care Management to Help Elderly Adults Remain at Home

Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) provides social and health care management services created to delay older adults from having to go into nursing homes.

To get these services, you must:

  • Be 65 years of age or older

  • Have a possible need for nursing home care
  • Be on Medi-Cal with no Share of Cost
