Florida Medicaid Divisor adjusted

The rules for qualifying for Florida Medicaid benefits for long-term care are complex, and always changing. On September 19, 2013, they changed again, when the monthly penalty divisor was revised upward, from $7,362.00 to $7,638.00. 

The penalty divisor is important if you are applying for long-term care benefits. If you have made uncompensated transfers during the look-back period, Florida Medicaid uses the penalty divisor to determine how long you will wait before you are eligible for benefits (assuming you meet all other requirements, of course).
