Florida Attorneys Know You Often Need An Elder Law Attorney
Eligibility for Florida Medicaid can be a very complicated process. The layperson might hardly know where to begin and can make serious mistakes trying to do it alone (or even when hiring a non-attorney Medicaid planner).
Florida attorneys can tell you the rules concerning the Florida Medicaid application do differ from state to state. So knowing the Medicaid application rules in another state will not necessarily be helpful in Florida, and can also lead to major mistakes.
To qualify for Medicaid ICP benefits or Medicaid Waiver in Florida, an applicant must meet the following standards:
- Must be a United States citizen or legal resident alien who has resided in the United States for at least five years.
- Must reside in Florida
- Must pass the asset test, i.e., the countable assets must not exceed $2,000 (as of 2020)
