Medicaid in Florida nursing home to assisted living or to home. My father-in-law is in a New Port Richey, FL nursing home, has exceeded his 100 Medicare days, has applied for Medicaid and is pending. If Medicaid is approved and he were to improve and be discharged and moved to a nearby assisted living facility and maybe eventually home, would Medicaid "follow" him. If so would he reapply? What does Medicaid cover if he moves home? A friend of his is working with social services at the nursing home but we are not getting a clear picture of what would or could happen.
