We’re going to start with Medicaid home care which is a government benefit available to people who need assistance with their activities of daily living but wish to remain in their home. The Medicaid home care program helps defray the cost of the home health aides in order to qualify for Medicaid home care. An individual must be both financially and medically eligible. The Medicaid Home Care program has implemented changes to the home care assessment for hours paid by Medicaid, and has implemented a new 30 month look back period effective January 1, 2021. The thirty (30) month look back will apply to transfers made on or after October 1, 2020.
Medicaid, what you need to know.
