Payment to a family member is permitted in SOME states. In my case payment up to the amount an agency would charge is permitted, at the low end that is $18.00 an hour. But the care must be medically necessary as determined by a doctor. See an elder law attorney to talk about your state requirements to be compliant with Medicaid regulations. Anything paid without a care agreement in place is considered a gift and subject to penalty.
