Long Term Care (Nursing home, and CAP)
Medicaid will help pay the cost of care in a nursing home if all requirements are met. The applicant/recipient must have begun a continuous period of institutionalization which begins when:
1) he/she is admitted to a LTC (Long Term Care) facility or
2) he/she is admitted to a general hospital and his/her stay is expected to exceed 30 days of continuous care.
Financial need must also exist.
