Medicare Resources

Florida Medicaid

Medicaid, is a joint federal-state program, subject to certain federal requirements, each state implements its own regulations on how the program is managed. Medicaid is not an entitlement program like Medicare, but rather a form of welfare. Medicaid eligibility is determined after the proper application is submitted to the state. There are many Medicaid insurance programs available in Florida, from basic medical coverage to nursing home programs. Information about Medicaid for long-term care in a nursing home or community setting, can be found onthe Florida Department of Children & Families website.

The Florida Department of Elder Affairs provides a wealth of information for seniors and care givers.

We assist seniors and their families in making the tough decisions regarding long-term care planning, including whether Medicaid eligibility may be an option.
