Today is a New Day for Florida Medicaid Recipients

 

For the first time in 25 years, Nursing Home Medicaid recipients in Florida have gotten a raise in their personal needs allowance! Beginning today, instead of retaining $35 per month, residents will now retain $105 per month to pay for personal needs such as clothing, haircuts, personal grooming supplies, and other personal items. This change will enhance the lives of tens of thousands of nursing home residents across the state.

Please check your mail for a “Notice of Case Action” from the Department of Children and Families documenting the change and accompanying reduction in patient responsibility.

If you have questions about this change, or would like to meet with a Solkoff Legal, P.A. attorney to address your long-term care needs, please call us at 561-733-4242.
