Nursing Home Medicaid “ICP”

It’s a Federal and State program funded via your Social Security tax dollars.
It’s designed to pay for Nursing Home care of Elder’s or the Disabled.
There is an “Income & Asset Test” that must be met in order to qualify.

Medicaid provides a broad level of health care coverage including:

  • Doctor’s Visits
  • Hospital Expenses, Nursing Home Rehab and Resident Services
  • In 2009, the average monthly nursing home bill was between $6,000 to $8,000 per month in the state of Florida.
  • Once on Medicaid, your obligation to the nursing home is your monthly income, minus a Personal Needs Allowance.
  • With planning, your assets can be protected.
