Community Medicaid covers care that is provided in the patient’s
home, as opposed to a skilled nursing facility.
Community Medicaid assists in paying for care that is required
for daily living, whether in the patient’s own home,
or in an Assisted Living facility. Typically, individuals
who require such care may be eligible for a very minimal amount
of hours through Medicare or private insurance coverage.
After an initial short period of coverage, Medicare and insurance
coverage are often cut, and the harsh reality sets in.
Ongoing nursing care is extremely costly and can deplete
a person’s hard-earned savings in a relatively short
period of time. The good news, however, is that Medicaid
is available to cover the costs of much of the needed care.
Many people receive 8, 12 or even 24 hours of care in their
own homes, through Medicaid benefits-- and Medicaid is generally
a viable option.
Due to misinformation, many people are unaware that they
can indeed become eligible for Medicaid.
This unfortunate fact can be extremely costly. Individuals
struggling with terms such as surplus income, pooled income
trusts, Medicaid lien of their home, German reparations, five-year
look-back period, and countless other forms of complicated
jargon, are unsure what this information means, and how it
affects them personally.
