• How States Are Helping People Get Medicaid At Home

    medicaid at home

    Survey after survey shows that people want to continue living in their homes as they age, rather than moving to a nursing home or an assisted living facility. (In a recent Nationwide Insurance survey of Americans 50 and older, 61% said they’d rather die than live in a nursing home.) But whether you or your parents will be able to receive long-term care benefits at home through Medicaid — assuming Medicaid-eligibility — is an open question.

    That’s because state rules vary enormously regarding whether Medicaid — the leading payer of long-term care in America — will pay for a person’s long-term care at home. But a new report from the Center for Health Care Strategies (a nonprofit health policy resource center focused on low-income Americans) and Manatt Health (a health policy and business strategy advisory subsidiary of the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips law firm) aims to broaden the availability of Medicaid at home and in community-based settings.
