Florida Medicaid Information Resource - Aging Wisely

Aging Wisely’s care managers can be your Florida Medicaid information resource, for help knowing what programs you or your loved one might be eligible for, how these programs work, what facilities accept Medicaid as a form of payment, and what options are available to best fit your needs.

Generally, when we talk about Florida Medicaid, we are referring to the programs related to long term care, whether it be the traditional ICP Medicaid (Nursing Home Medicaid) or Assisted Living Medicaid Waiver, or Long Term Diversion Program (Nursing Home Diversion). There are many programs under Florida Medicaid, but these are some of the primary programs for senior citizens and older adults facing disability and long term care needs.

How does Aging Wisely help answer your Florida Medicaid questions?

  • Explaining to you what Medicaid is, eligibility criteria, and various programs.
  • Assessing your loved one’s situation to see if a Medicaid program may be an option and explaining what a program might provide.
  • Referring you to appropriate professionals, such as elder law attorneys, when you/your loved one is over the asset or income limits for eligibility and needs help with asset protection options and legal work.
  • Walking you through the process and explaining criteria in laymen’s terms, as well as being your advocate throughout.
  • Helping locate assisted living facilities and nursing homes that are the right fit for your loved one, taking into account the client’s budget or Medicaid payer source.
  • Acting as an advocate to ensure your loved one is getting the care they deserve whatever the payer source.

Aging Wisely’s services are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or health insurance. Some services may be covered by your Employer or Long Term Care Insurance. Aging Wisely is an independent advocate, hired by you to make sure you get the answers you need, the communication and attention you deserve—we do not work for insurance companies, facilities, or agencies so that there is no conflict of interest. We can answer your questions based on your personal circumstances, and help demystify the Medicaid misinformation you may have heard.
