Aid & Attendance Benefit

Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses, 65 years and older, may be entitled to a tax-free benefit called Aid and Attendance provided by the Department of Veteran Affairs.

The Benefit is designed to provide financial aid to help offset the cost of long-term care for those who need assistance with the daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring.

American Veterans Aid, a private company, is dedicated to helping war era veterans and their surviving spouses receive this Benefit which they so deserve.

What Does the Benefit Mean to You?

      • With the benefit in hand, you are able to afford the care you need.
      • You never have to pay it back and it is completely tax free.
      • Like Social Security, this pension is dependable and is paid directly to you by the Department of the Treasury.
      • This benefit can be used for in-home care, board and care, an assisted living community, and private-pay nursing home.

Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) – Long-term Care Program

In 2011, the Florida Legislature created a new program called the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) program.

There are two different programs that make up the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care:

      • The Long-term Care (LTC) Managed Care Program
      • The Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Program

Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care – Long-term Care program will receive long-term care services from a long-term care managed care plan. Medicaid recipients who qualify and become enrolled in the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care – Managed Medical Assistance program will receive all health care services other than long-term care from a managed care plan.

What does the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care program do?

Medicaid recipients will receive their long-term care services from a managed care plan. These managed care plans will cover long-term care services only and do not cover medications, doctor’s visits or other healthcare related services.

All long-term care managed care plans offer the following services:

      • Adult Companion
      • Adult Day Care (Adult Day Health Care)
      • Assistive Care Services
      • Assisted Living Facility Services
      • Attendant Care
      • Behavior Management
      • Caregiver Training
      • Case Management
      • Home Accessibility Adaptation
      • Home Delivered Meals
      • Homemaker

      • Intermittent and Skilled Nursing
      • Medical Equipment & Supplies

      • Respiratory Therapy
      • Respite Care

The state will send Medicaid recipients a letter notifying them as to whether or not they are required to enroll in Florida’s Statewide Medicaid Managed Care – Long-term Care program.

Note: The Statewide Medicaid Managed Care program will not change Medicare benefits.
