Navigate Aging with Dignity: Understanding Florida's Medicaid Waiver Program

Hi, I'm Geoff Hoatson, CEO and founding attorney here at the Family First Firm. Today, I want to talk to you about something very close to our hearts, the Florida Medicaid waiver program. Aging is a journey, and we believe that it should be embraced with dignity and comfort. And that's where Medicaid waiver comes in. It's a program designed to let you age in the comfort of your own home. Let's dive into the three possible scenarios this program will cover. First is Private Duty Care Coverage. It's about personalized care right at home. You choose your caregiver, and Medicaid makes sure that they're trained and compensated—at no cost to you. Most clients prefer this option as it allows them to remain in the comfort of their own home while still receiving the necessary care. Next is the Assisted Living Coverage. Sometimes standard home isn't a viable option, but you aren't ready for 24/7 care either. Medicaid will supplement the cost of assisted living, making them more financially accessible. They pay up to $1,700 a month. This is a fantastic option for clients who want to retain their freedom and set their own schedule but might need a little additional help from time to time. The last scenario is Adult Daycare Coverage. This option aims to foster joy and socialization for seniors through meaningful activities in a safe and secure environment. As long as you live in a qualifying county, Medicaid can help cover this expense for you. Now let's talk about the challenges. The qualification process can be overwhelming with a waiting list that feels like forever. Depending on the level of care you need will determine when you're called off the waiting list and eligible to apply for benefits. But here's the thing. At Family First Firm, we can help you get through the waitlist and the application process faster. We know the ins and outs of Florida Medicaid, and we're here to guide you through it.

Let us provide the clarity that you need. At the Family First Firm, we're always by your side.
