Financial Assistance Programs in Spring Hill

Medicaid Program in Spring Hill

Medicaid is funded by the federal and state governments to provide low-income residents with medical services and some long-term care options. Seniors and the blind or disabled in Florida are placed in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care program.

The SMMC was created in 2014 to group the various Medicaid waivers for in-home and community care options that had been available separately before that time. The goal of this program is to delay the need for institutionalized care by providing services in the home, assisted living or other alternatives to nursing facilities.

Services available under the SMMC are split into three parts.

  • Managed Medical Assistance (MMA): This part covers the care received from doctors, hospitals and mental health services, as well as prescription drugs and transport to Medicaid-approved services.
  • Long-Term Care (LTC): The LTC covers nursing facility care, assisted living and in-home services for qualified residents.
  • Dental: This covers all Medicaid-approved dental services. It is mandatory for all Medicaid recipients in Florida.

Florida Medicaid eligibility requirements:

  • Aged 65+ or disabled by Social Security standards
  • Legal resident of Florida and U.S. citizen or national (or satisfactory immigration status)
  • Maximum income of $2,313 per month ($4,626 for eligible couples)
  • Maximum value of $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 for eligible couples)

Seniors applying for the Long-Term Care part of the SMMC must also be assessed as requiring a nursing facility level of care; however, assisted living and in-home care may still be covered if it is determined to be appropriate.

Anyone receiving Supplemental Security Income payments from the federal government automatically qualifies for full Medicaid coverage. In Florida, this is often called SSI-Related Medicaid. Contact the Social Security Administration to arrange coverage – applying for Medicaid is not necessary for SSI recipients unless requesting nursing care.

Medicaid assistance to pay for a nursing home, adult day care and some in-home services is an entitlement in Florida, so there is no waiting list for qualified applicants. Assisted living is an entitlement only if the individual is approved for the Long-Term Care part of the SMMC.

Apply for Medicaid and SMMC plans online using the ACCESS Florida system. Call the Department of Children and Families customer line during business hours on (866) 762-2237.

Read more about the benefits and requirements in our Florida SMMC guide.

Other Financial Assistance Programs in Spring Hill

Optional State Supplementation (OSS)

Florida’s Department of Children and Families offers residents a monthly payment from state funds in addition to the Supplemental Security Income they receive from the U.S. government.

This small monthly payment is the Optional State Supplement and it is intended to help pay for room and board costs in licensed residential care facilities, such as assisted living, adult foster care and mental health facilities.

OSS eligibility requirements for assets are the same as for Medicaid, although the maximum allowable income is much lower. Individuals must be at or below $2,000 in countable assets ($3,000 for eligible couples). The maximum income allowed as of 2019 is $849 ($1,698 for eligible couples). The maximum monthly OSS payment is $78 ($156 for eligible couples).

Individuals who are receiving assistance from Medicaid related to assisted living are not eligible to receive OSS.

Apply for the Optional State Supplement using the ACCESS Florida system. The Florida DCF helpline can be reached on (866) 762-2237 during business hours.

Read more about this program in our Florida OSS guide.

Respite for Elders Living in Everyday Families (RELIEF)

Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs manages the RELIEF program which provides respite care to families caring for seniors and those with memory-related disorders.

The goal of this program is to relieve family caregivers of their duties for up to four hours so that they can take a break. This temporary respite is available for any reason, such as a night out with friends or a shopping trip.

Read more about this respite program in our Florida RELIEF guide.

Home Care for the Elderly (HCE)

This program is designed to help seniors stay in their own home or that of a caregiver by providing a higher level of in-home care to qualified individuals. Home Care for the Elderly is similar to other programs such as Community Care for the Elderly; however, HCE is available for some Medicaid recipients while CCE is not.

Services available from this program include general support and maintenance of the individual (food, clothing and some medical services), medication and supplies, assistive devices and accessibility modifications, home health aides and nurses, as well as case management when required.

Applicants must be aged 60+ and meet the income and asset requirements for Medicaid as detailed in this guide. It must also be determined that the individual would be forced to enter nursing home care if HCE services were not provided and that they have a caregiver living with them. This caregiver can be a family member.

Apply for Home Care for the Elderly by contacting the Elder Options ARC which is partnered with the Department of Elder Affairs to manage the program in Spring Hill and Hernando County. Information and assistance is available by calling the Elder Helpline on (800) 963-5337.

Read more about the requirements and services provided in our Florida HCE guide.

Community Care for the Elderly (CCE)

CCE is a program managed by the Department of Elder Affairs that allows seniors to remain in their own home or that of a caregiver. This helps the state save money on expensive nursing facility costs and provides more options that can delay the need for institutionalized care.

Services available from the CCE program include adult day care, homemakers and home health aides, companionship and personal care, meal delivery, transport and shopping assistance, as well as respite for caregivers.

Individuals must be aged 60+ and assessed as having a functional impairment. This program can’t be used alongside Medicaid; if the individual qualifies for Medicaid, they will not qualify for the CCE program.

Apply for the CCE program by contacting a local Aging Resource Center. The ARC managing this program in Spring Hill and all of Hernando County is Elder Options. Call the Elder Helpline on (800) 963-5337 to request an assessment.
