Florida Medicaid Planning

Medicaid for nursing home care in Florida provides financial assistance to eligible residents who need long-term care but cannot afford it. Far too many people do not apply believing that they are not eligible because they have too much money. That is often not the case in Florida. Below are the benefits in simple terms:

  • Covers Costs: Medicaid helps cover the high costs of nursing home care, which can be very expensive, ensuring that individuals receive the care they need without depleting their life savings.
  • Comprehensive Care: It covers a range of services in nursing homes, including room and board, medical care, and support for daily living activities.
  • Eligibility Assistance: Florida offers programs and support to help individuals understand if they qualify for Medicaid, making the process less confusing.
