The rooms were small, the place looked old and run-d...Read more Eustis Senior Care reviews

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:
For more information about Florida’s Medicaid program and the SMMC LTC, contact the Lake County Elder Helpline at (800) 262-2243 or Elder Options, the Area Agency on Aging for Lake County, at (352) 378-6649.
Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance
Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits and Housebound Allowance are two VA pension top-up programs that provide cash benefits that can be used towards the costs of assisted living.
Eligible veterans and survivors who have a chronic illness, disability or multiple disabilities unrelated to military service that impact their ability to care for themselves or leave their home can apply for one of these two programs.
For the Housebound Allowance, applicants must have a VA-assessed disability rating of 100% and have marked difficulty travelling outside of their residence.
Under the Housebound Allowance, the maximum total combined VA monthly pension payment is $1,378 for a single veteran, $1,728 for a veteran with one dependent and $925 for a single surviving spouse.
For Aid and Attendance, applicants must meet one or more of the following criteria:
Under the Aid and Attendance Benefit, the maximum monthly VA pension payment is $1,881 for a single veteran, $2,230 for a veteran with one dependent and $1,211 for a single survivor.
Note: To qualify for either program, applicants must be eligible for a regular VA pension. Eligible applicants can only collect benefits through either Aid and Attendance or Housebound.
For more information and help with the application process, contact the Lake County Veterans Services Office at (352) 742-6586.
Optional State Supplementation
The Florida Optional State Supplementation program provides Supplemental Security Income top-up funding to eligible seniors who are aged 65 or older, qualify for SSI benefits and need to live in an assisted living facility because they cannot safely live on their own.
Single applicants may receive $78.40 per month in OSS funding, and couples may receive up to $156.80. The OSS benefit is designed to help seniors pay for the room-and-board portion of their care costs.
For more information on the OSS for seniors, call the Lake County Elder Helpline at (800) 262-2243.
