Eligibility

Service providers may receive a WFCAP payment up to $1,500 for unmet funeral/burial expenses, and up to $1,000 for unmet cemetery/crematory expenses for certain decedents enrolled in any of the following programs:

If a decedent was not enrolled in one of the above programs at the time of death, the decedent may still qualify for WFCAP benefits if at the time of death or due to the cause of death, the decedent was eligible for Medicaid. Prior to the service provider submitting a WFCAP application, the decedent’s representative or family must contact the decedent’s income maintenance agency for a posthumous application to determine if the decedent was eligible for Medicaid.
