Financial Assistance Programs in Pompano Beach

Medicaid Program in Pompano Beach

Long-term care in Florida is provided by the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long-Term Care (SMMC-LTC). The program divides the state into 11 regions, each managed by a different Managed Healthcare Organization, and Pompano Beach is part of Region 10. The program provides a range of services, although not all participants are able to access every service. Assisted living, nursing home care, adult day care and home health care are all covered. Other services include respite care, caregiver training and medical equipment. Some services can be directed by participants.

Florida Medicaid is an entitlement program, so all residents who meet the eligibility requirements receive care. Eligibility criteria cover age, income, care requirements and residency. All applicants must require a nursing facility level of care, which is defined as requiring help with at least two activities of daily living and be legal Florida residents aged 65 or older. Applicants who are aged between 18 and 64 must be designated as disabled.

Applicants who are single must have an income of less than $2,313 a month and assets of less than $2,000. When only one spouse of a married couple is applying they must meet the same income limits, although the non-applicant spouse can have a further $126,420 of assets. When both members of a married couple are applying, the monthly income limit is $4,626 and the asset limit is $3,000. Furniture, personal belongings, burial trusts, a primary home and an automobile are excluded when an applicant’s asset value is calculated.

Residents who don’t meet financial eligibility requirements may still be able to access the program through different pathways. People can put excess income into Qualified Income Trusts, which allows them to qualify for Medicaid. These trusts have strict terms; money in trusts can only be used for specific purposes, such as medical bills and personal needs allowances. The trusts cannot be canceled, and upon the death of the Medicaid recipient, the state of Florida receives any remaining money.

The Medically Needy Pathway is also available to people with high income and high medical expenses. In the program, participants use their excess income to pay medical expenses. Once they reach the income limit for Medicaid eligibility, they receive Medicaid for the remainder of the month.  Information on applying can be found on the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care website or by calling 1-877-711-3662.
