Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Eustis

Medicaid in Florida

Medicaid is a national government-funded health plan that provides eligible low-income people with essential health benefits, such as primary care, hospital services and long-term care. In some states Medicaid also includes optional, state-specific benefits that cover basic dental and vision care services, prescription medications, physical and occupational therapy, hospice care and community-based nursing home diversion programs. 

Eligibility for Medicaid coverage in Florida is determined by either the Social Security Administration or the Department of Children and Families. Seniors who meet the income and asset criteria benefits for Supplemental Security Income benefits automatically qualify for basic Medicaid coverage. 

Qualifying for Medicaid

Seniors aged 65 and older who need long-term care services may qualify if they earn $2,313 or less per month and they own under $2,000 worth of countable assets, including all cash, stocks, bonds and most types of real estate. 

Senior couples requiring long-term Medicaid services may qualify if they earn $4,262 or less per month and own under $3,000 in joint countable assets. If only one spouse needs coverage, the income of the healthy spouse is disregarded. The non-applicant spouse (community spouse) can receive income transferred from the applicant to bring the total monthly income of the community spouse up to a maximum of $3,161 per month to prevent spousal impoverishment. 

Some specific assets are exempt under Medicaid rules. These assets include one vehicle, an irrevocable burial contract, household furnishings and personal items and a home owned and occupied by the Medicaid applicant and/or their spouse valued at no more than $585,000. 

The community spouse may also keep half of the couple’s joint assets (in addition to Medicaid-exempt assets) worth a maximum of $126,420 under the community spouse resource allowance rule. 

Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care Program

The Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long Term Care program is managed care designed to reduce institutionalization rates among Medicaid-enrolled seniors who meet the clinical criteria for nursing home placement. 

This program funds community-based services to help seniors in an assisted living facility. These amenities are assigned based on the needs identified by the Comprehensive Assessment and Review for Long-Term Care Services, a federally mandated preadmission screening program for all Medicaid participants who request enrollment in a long-term care plan.

Based on the needs identified by CARES, seniors who are deemed eligible to participate in the SMMC LTC may be provided with one or more of the following benefits:

  • Durable medical equipment and disposable medical supplies
  • Intermittent skilled nursing care
  • Personal care to help with activities of daily living
  • Speech, physical, occupational and/or respiratory therapy
  • Access to a personal emergency medical alert device
  • <
