Financial Assistance Programs in Coral Springs

Medicaid Program in Coral Springs

The Florida Medicaid program helps residents of Coral Springs who have limited financial means to pay for nursing home care, assisted living, home care and other senior services. Medicaid in Florida is an entitlement program. Anyone who meets the program’s income and asset requirements can receive all of its services. The program covers the full cost of certain senior services in Coral Springs and contributes to the cost of others, with the beneficiary or their private insurer responsible for the balance. You must qualify for Medicaid’s managed long-term care program to receive financial help for assisted living. Eligibility requirements for this program include limited financial means and a demonstrated need for care.

The financial requirements to qualify for Florida Medicaid in Coral Springs include a monthly income of under $2,250 a month for a single applicant or $4,500 a month for a married couple applying together. Your total assets may not exceed $2,000 if you are single or $3,000 if you are a married couple, though the program allows you to exclude certain items, such as your home and car, from the total.

To apply for Florida Medicaid, including the managed long-term care program, in Coral Springs, visit http://www.myflorida.com/accessflorida/ or call (866) 762-2237.

Medicaid Waivers in Coral Springs

Florida no longer has a Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid Waiver. Instead, in 2014, the state replaced the program with its Statewide Managed Medicaid Care Long Term Care program. This managed program provides a host of services to eligible seniors, including meal prep and delivery, personal care and help with errands. Under the rules of the program, eligible participants can have a caregiver appointed by Medicaid, or they may appoint a person of their choice, such as a relative or friend.

One of the biggest benefits of the switch from waivers to the managed long-term care program is that the new program is an entitlement. That means there is no waiting list or cap on enrollment and that anyone who meets the program’s requirements can sign up and receive services.

To qualify for this program, you must be a legal resident of Florida who is at least 65 years old or a recipient of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). You must also require skilled nursing care and meet the qualifications for Medicaid in Florida.

You can apply for this program or receive further information by calling the Department of Children and Families (DCF) at (866) 762-2237 or visiting the program’s website at http://www.myflorida.com/accessflorida/.
