An Untapped Funding Approach: Using Medicaid to Offset Wages for Care
March 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Medicaid does not pay the room and board costs for a Medicaid recipient receiving home and community-based services. However, under a specific area of Medicaid law, Medicaid will pay the proportionate room and board costs of a live-in personal care worker. This session will discuss how the caregiver’s free housing can in effect act as a rent subsidy for a Medicaid recipient who otherwise cannot afford housing. In addition, under Department of Labor rules, the free housing for the live-in caregiver can also offset wages otherwise owed to the caregiver for providing personal care to the Medicaid recipient.
This session from the Self-Direction Virtual Conference will take place on Tuesday, March 7 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET.
