Medicaid Myths: Part I
Over the years I’ve been continually amazed at how much misinformation swirls around Medicaid eligibility for long-term care coverage. I have heard them called “myths” but I call them voodoo because believing them can be harmful. The purpose of this article is to dispel the most common Medicaid Myths. We will address five such myths this issue and five more next.

Medicaid Myths: Part II
This is the second article of the Medicaid Myths series: Myths #6-10 regarding Medicaid eligibility.

What do I need to know about: Veteran's Aid & Attendance and Housebound Benefits
Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and require the aid and attendance of another person, or are housebound, may be eligible for additional monetary payment. These benefits are paid in addition to monthly pension, and they are not paid without eligibility to Pension.

DNR Form
The Florida DNR form must be signed by a doctor. You may print out the attached copy (click on link above) on yellow paper and bring to your physician for signature.
