You might wonder why Assisted Living Facilities don’t tell you that they accept Medicaid. If you go to most any website for an assisted living facility, payment options are usually not discussed, and whether Medicaid is accepted is kept secret.
The reasons I have heard from most facility owners is that they can get more money out of those people who are private pay. It’s easier for them in terms of paperwork, and less hassle all around.
Additionally, many states don’t even facilitate a relationship between Medicaid and assisted living. However, Florida is one of the handful of states that does allow Medicaid to help cover the cost of assisted living.
