As we proceed into the New Year, I hear each day the stories of people who face the challenges of aging. Individuals and families confront the need to plan for senior care and the stress that comes with meeting the costs. For those who face financial hardships, the available governmental Medicare and Medicaid programs have growing demands and limited funds.
Medicaid fund distribution
Right now, Florida is addressing a tight distribution of Medicaid funds. The Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) is debating with other state officials and nursing care advocacy groups regarding a plan for equitable distribution of Medicaid funds between managed-care plans and funds for nursing homes. Florida’s nursing homes are by and large among the best in the country but are not cheap. Medicaid has helped to alleviate some costs but there is no consensus over how to stretch the dollars across the many nursing homes with varied services and costs. There’s just not enough public money to address nursing home needs.
