In Florida, Medicaid programs are available to provide assistance for individuals who need care at home, in an assisted living community or skilled nursing facility and meet medical and financial eligibility requirements.
An applicant’s medical need is determined by an assessment of your loved one’s ability to independently perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL) as well as cognitive function.
Financial eligibility is based upon the income and assets of an individual applying for benefits and takes into consideration the financial needs of a spouse. Families often are misinformed believing they must first be impoverished before they are eligible to receive financial assistance. Through proper planning you may be able to retain assets and still qualify for benefits.
