Although services in the home, as well as services at the assisted living facility for Medicaid coverage is available, it's very different than Medicaid in the nursing home. Medicaid in a nursing home is an entitlement, whereas the Medicaid in the home or at the assisted living facility is considered a waiver, that means the state of Florida can actually control the budget for how many people receive those services in the home or at the assisted living facility. In Florida it is based on a wait list and in 2016, the numbers for how many people were on the wait list is as high as 56,000 individuals waiting for those services for Medicaid in their own home.
