Foundational Community Supports (FCS) is a new program which offers benefits for supportive housing and supported employment for Medicaid eligible beneficiaries who have complex needs. Amerigroup Washington will work with your housing and employment provider to help you find and maintain a job and stable, independent housing. We will also help you gain the skills to be successful.
