Thousands of Medicaid appeals, no requests to group home housing fund

More than 2,500 people have appealed their loss of Medicaid support for personal care services, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services.

Meanwhile, no group home has requested money to compensate for the loss of Medicaid reimbursements for personal care, the DHHS said.

Medicaid rules that took hold on Jan. 1 made it harder for people living in adult care homes and group homes for the mentally disabled to qualify for Medicaid money for help bathing, walking, and eating. DHHS expects 9,000 people to appeal, or just about everyone who was told they no longer qualify for Medicaid personal care, said department spokesman Brad Deen.
