Can you use Medicaid to compensate family members who are live-in caretakers? Unfortunately, the answer is “no.”
On March 1, 2014 Florida discontinued all Medicaid HCBS Waivers relevant to the elderly for long-term care. Seniors now receive assistance from the statewide Medicaid Managed Care Long Term, also known as SMMC LTC Program.
