Florida Medicaid Manual
The following are links to the Florida Medicaid Program Policy Manual. The portion that pertains directly to Nursing Home Medicaid are the sections denoted by MSSI (Medicaid SSI) and ICP (Institutional Care Program).
SSI-Related Programs are state administered programs whose policies are based on Title XVI of the Social Security Act, the same law which governs Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for determining eligibility for SSI, which is a financial assistance program for the aged, blind, or disabled. The purpose of all SSI-Related Programs is to provide medical and/or financial assistance to needy individuals who are aged, blind, or disabled in the community or with special living arrangements. Although specific requirements may vary from program to program, the general program (technical) requirements are the same since all are based on SSI policy.
An SSI-Related Medicaid case may contain one or more of the following types of assistance: Institutional Care Program (ICP), MEDS-AD, Protected Medicaid (PM), Medically Needy, Emergency Medicaid for Aliens (EMA), Hospice, Home and Community Based Services (HCBS), Refugee Assistance Program (RAP), Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries (QMB), Working Disabled (WD), Special Low Income Medicare Beneficiary (SLMB), Optional State Supplementation (OSS), Part B Medicare Only (PBMO), Home Care for Disabled Adults (HCDA), or food stamps. We have highlighted the sections that will be helpful in understanding the portions that deal with MSSI ICP, Nursing Home Medicaid.
