How to begin the process… We will work for and with YOU!

  1. Contact your local county human service offices to apply for Medicaid benefits. You can also download the application for medical assistance at DHS Medical Assistance Application
  2. After you have applied for medical assistance, contact your county or health plan for a nurse to come out to authorize services. You can inform the nurse that you would like to use Bella Mente to provide your continuum of care.
  3. If you have existing services and/or a PCA from another agency contact the Bella Mente home office to request assistance or you can download the intake packet and employee packet and submit online automatically.
  4. If you are new to PCA services or do not have a PCA Bella Mente will help you secure a responsible, reliable and trusted PCA to render your services. We go above and beyond for you and will advertise and recruit for you!
  5. We are happy to assist you in the process. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Bella Mente staff at 218-301-7301 or email
