Can the Care-Givers be paid through Medicaid? My personal care and homemaker chores have been covered by an home health agency for almost 8 years. Now due to lack of employees, my authorized hours of care by Medicaid are not being fulfilled. So my

case worker suggests going the route of  "Self Direct" i.e. hiring my own care-givers.  In the case of Self Direct, Medicaid will pay $10.10 for Homemaker chores of cooking and light house work and $11.35 for "hands-on care" which also includes toileting, showering, dressing, cooking, feeding, laundry, and light housework, errands, accompanying me places.

I have worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at a Nursing Home in Castleton, NY for 15 years. I also worked at Samaritan Hospital in Troy, NY as a Patient Care Technician for 11 plus years. I love working one on one with the elderly. You can give them so much more care, attention, and companionship one on one. I feel that my passion is working with the elderly. It is very rewarding taking care of them. Holly

Medicare , as of Jan,2019 has implemented home assistance aides into the"budget" its not full time though. I too would say go the "Self Directed Care" route. You will be paid by a 3rd party intermediary (In AZ, thats how it works) Even with SDC though, the client is only allowed so many hours & the company dictates the pay. Good luck to you .:-)

I understand that Medicaid is paying less for Care -Givers,but as my opinion if you are going self direct it will cost more.

Probably not but you should look into IHSS short for "In Home Supportive Services" if you're illegible that will pay your caregivers for you so you wouldn't have to pay out of pocket.

In most states medicaid will pay for personal care service's or personal attendant service's. Self Direct is Person centered planning, service plan,individual budget and information and assistance.

There are many different programs to help in that case. Would be good to look into what else could be available, they may vary in different situations. I hope you find the right fit.

I believe it depends on the amount of care and specific situations, to make it fear $10 is very little and $11 is not much also. Depending on family situations and finance will determine what will be the best rate.

Hours are based on eligibility guidelines when you choose to hire under selfpay (hire your own) I have worked under these same terms for dual client family in the past. It depends on elgibility.

Yes you can handle it yourself we would have to meet with your case worker so she can process the appropriate forms to medicaid. She should also have the daily sheets that medicaid requires for reporting on a patient. I have worked for two medicaid patients and I am familiar with what they look for in acquiring help for yourself.

Yes, but I do not work with Medicade patients. I mostly work with the upper middle class and the wealthy who request the highest level of personalized care. Details on http://www.alzheimershomehealt... This level of care is higher and more personalized.

What exactly is the question?? A portion of what this client requires is PCS (personal care services) while the remainder of her needs are "chore" oriented. Medicaid will pay for these services; typically up to 19 hours per week, as long as the predominance of services required are PCS and that the chore services are provided in conjunction with PCS.

Yes, Medicaid pays for caregivers but the Medicaid home care program will also depend on the Medicaid program the patient is enrolled in. You can also ask the health and human services in the state where you live.

I believe one has to be a certified/registered health aide in order for a client to receive Medicaid/Medicare reimbursement for wages paid to same. Your wages will always come from the client directly - not from government-based services offered to the client.

Caregivers who are paid through Medicaid must go through the State Agency and be approved by them as an in home caregiver. THey must subnit an application with the clients Medicaid number and usually must have CPR and First Aide classes through your local Blue Cross Agency. In the state of TN where I live it is called CHOICES. You can call your local DHS/Medicaid office for instructions. There is is also Respite Care through PPO's if you have private insurance.

This program benefits both Medicaid recipients who need care and family caregivers who would otherwise be providing services without pay. The patients are able to remain in their own home or community rather than transitioning to assisted living or other long-term care facilities, while a relative or friend can provide loving care and still manage to bring in some money. www.agingcare.com

I was just on a job for7 years. The caregivers filled out time sheets and the family was reimbursed by an insurance company they had a long-term plan with. They still had some out of pocket to pay but insurance paid most. Not Medicaid but it should be handled similarly.

I believe Medicaid reimburses you that amount and you would be responsible for the rest. Also, you would have to pay the caregiver the amount Medicaid will "eventually" reimburse you.
