Health Services – Adult Evaluation and Review Services (AERS)

Adult Evaluation and Review Services (AERS) is a Maryland Medicaid program that provides comprehensive evaluations for aged and functionally disabled adults and children. Evaluations are conducted by a Registered Nurse and/or Social Worker in various community settings. The purpose of an AERS evaluation is to assess an individual’s medical, functional and psychosocial needs and develop a comprehensive, person-centered plan of care, as well as provide recommendations and linkages to additional services. An AERS evaluation may also be conducted to assess an individual’s eligibility for Medicaid programs. 

The plan of care and services recommended by AERS help to enhance an individual’s functionality and safety, allowing them to function optimally in the least restrictive environment.
